What is a Poet?

Hello everyone, I stumbled on this very sweet poem by e.e.cummings about poetry. I feel it was so cool and true. What do you think? Tell us your favourite definition of poetry, it could be by you or someone else. Enjoy!!!
  What is a Poet?
   A poet is somebody who feels, and who expresses
   his feelings through words.
     This may sound easy.  It isn't.
     A lot of people think or believe or know they
   feel -- but that's thinking or believing or
   knowing; not feeling.  and poetry is feeling --
   not knowing or believing or thinking.
     Almost anybody can learn to think or believe
   or know, but not a single human being can be
   taught to feel.  Why?  Because whenever you think
   or you believe or you know, you're a lot of other
   people;  but the moment you feel, you're 
   NOBODY-BUT-YOURSELF. e.e.cummings
