I like the sound of creaky wood-framed screen doors. Streets without curbs and gutters. Old dogs. Rifles with wood stocks and the feel of a well worn genuine leather Bible. What I like about each of these things is the longevity they represent. There is nothing wrong with modernity. It serves a purpose, but it lacks a poetic feel. Today, look for the poetry in life. It will bring a sense of belonging and place that the quick and efficient can never deliver.
