Reflection: About The Ways of Reading Poetry
Poetry is a form of literature that highly integrates contents and forms, and reveals aesthetic sense. Not only can poetry display an author’s thoughts and feelings in an imaginative way but also mirror the society and culture. Although I almost know nothing about poetry, I have a great interest. Reading a poem once in a while, those beautiful words can release internal emotions and thoughts. Reading poetry can improve one’s mind. Confucius says “Poetry can encourage one’s passion, let us observe the world, make people harmonize and express one’s anger.” I found this article to help me understand how to read poetry. I read half of it. What I like the most is “prose is like stroll while poetry is like dance.” It is proper to describe poetry as dance. I like watching dancing too. Dance is a kind of arts that is earlier than letters as a media to express human’s thoughts and wisdom. Even though I cannot analyze meanings of every movement, I can feel, and be touched by the beauty. Perhaps reading poetry has the similar feeling.

感想:有關讀詩的方法之一
詩一般被認為是種內容與形式高度結合統一,並體現出「美感」、適宜吟詠的文學形式。詩除了以豐富想像力表達作者的思想和情感,亦反映社會文化。
雖然我不懂詩,但我對詩很有興趣。偶爾讀一首好詩,美麗的語言釋放自己內在的情思。詩可以陶冶性情。孔子說「詩,可以興,可以觀,可以群,可以怨。」
因為不懂怎麼讀詩比較好,我找了這篇文章。目前看了一半。我最喜歡的一句話是「散文如同散步,詩宛若舞蹈」,將詩比喻舞蹈真是太貼切了。我也喜歡欣賞舞蹈,舞蹈是比文字更早,用來傳達人類思想和智慧的古早藝術,但是我沒辦法很精準去解讀每一個舞蹈動作的意義,我只能用感受的,為那呈現的美好感動。也許讀詩也有類似之處吧!
