    Art is hard, The artist suffers, mostly alone. The best ones, and most, die poor and without fair recognition until post humous. (Report) Reply

    As if art should not participate in redistribution & only exist once we're all in heaven.
    I think he was a radical materialist socialist, yet still a believer in the afterlife. (Report) Reply

    The greatest art man can ever see is nature. The greatest Artist -God made everything in a unique way. I love art and thus the poem. (Report) Reply

    Materialistic man's pursuits have killed beauty in Nature and Art by destroying all natural things of best and beautiful in the world! Ugliness now due to pollution by advanced technology is raising its head everywhere plunging the world in oblivion like autumn season and winter gloom too will follow before spring of new hope of Art will come later after realisation dawn on man of those precious gems man cannot ignore ever...!

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
