Thanks to a comment on Our Haiku Shack by Jean-Philippe Goetz translated into English:

A poet is anyone who writes and anyone who reads. Georges Sand once said: “Anyone who derives genuine pleasure from the sentiments aroused by poetry is a true poet even if he has never written a single verse in his life..."   

Le poète est celui qui écrit et aussi celui qui lit Georges Sand a dit : "... celui qui puise de nobles jouissance(s) dans le sentiment de la poésie est un vrai poète n'eut-t'il pas écrit un seul vers de sa vie ... "
