Definition of Literature

Literature is like water,

It does have ups and downs,

As is seen in the sea-waves,

Yet it works as the hearts’ redeemer.


They say that literature is like a mirror,

To Solzhenitsyn, it’s the “living memory of a nation”,

To Chesterton, it’s “a luxury”,

To Assante, “literature is air”.


Literature is that certain destination,

Where the writers and readers assemble in unison.
