Nature and art

Poem by: – Walter Savage-Landor..

I strove with none, for none was worth my strife;

Nature I loved best and next to Nature, Art;

I warm’d both hands before the fire of life,

It sinks, and  I am ready to depart.

– Walter Savage-Landor..

Comment:

It is a pity that the poet’s brilliant intellect could not have navigated the invisible and infinite ocean of reality which others before and after him have done.  The ability to intuit transcends the intellect where reason fails.  So the material world and its prcesses which can  give only  temporary pleasure, and which change and corrupt,  remain the only possibility.

– Randall Butisingh
