Art Maxims

OFTEN ornateness
Dwells with greatness.
Oftener felicity
Comes of simplicity.

Talent that's cheapest
Affects singularity.
Thoughts that dive deepest
Rise radiant in clarity.

Life being rough,
Sing smoothly, O Bard.
Enough, enough,
To have found Life hard!

No record Art keeps
Of her travail and throes.
There is toil on the steeps;
On the summits, repose.
