What does the poet do?

The poet communicates his ideas to the readers via intricate entanglements or, on the other hand, extremely light word combinations.

Now, it remains the best friend of philosophers, poets, and authors, and, to my incomprehensible joy, poetry is starting to capture the attention of the general public as well.
