This is kind of a weird question, but how do people get more out of poetry? I feel like when I read it I don't reach a kind of depth and passion that some people get. I can resonate strongly with lyrics, but poetry falls flat to me.

Any tips on how to get more out of poetry?

(I've been reading Whitman's Leaves of Grass)


Thanks everyone for the suggestions! I've got my reading cut out for me, looking forward to it 📖
