When does a poem begin?

I wonder when a poem begins.  The title? the first line? The first thought on a subject by the poet?  Do the lines that get crossed out really begin the poems we write?  Sometimes.

Maybe a poem begins when a poet find that pulse that drives him to a line.  So if we ignore the pulse to write, we leave the poems we’ve never written to be unfinished.
