As a poet and programmer, I was glad to see this written on Wordpress site. It takes great brain power to write poems. The same applies to programming too. Poets paint their ideas and feelings with words and programmers seek ways to compose software to solve their own problems and the problems of others.
I can't imagine how I can create powerful software if I don't use the software composed by other crazy brains. Appreciating the work of others empowers me to build with the user in mind.
Code is really poetry.
