As a calligrapher, unless you are very clever and write your own poetry and such, you depend on the words of others. I enjoy sipping a cup of tea and curl up reading poetry. Billy Collins is a favorite. As former poet laureate he developed a program for high schools, each morning a poem would be read to the students. This is a wonderful compilation of contemporary poetry. http://www.loc.gov/poetry/180/ He also includes instructions on how to read a poem.
