I have been reading, learning and reciting poetry since I'm a child (mostly Goethe) and I totally get the comforting part. Sometimes I automatically start reciting poems to myself and I often get asked if I'm praying. I'm certainly not, as I am an agnostic but it came to my mind, that maybe it has the same effect as praying for some people. What do you think about that theory?
Also, poetry is really inspiring, I'm always amazed how beautiful poets can express themselves, like you could really feel their longing, passion, griev ect just by reading words.
