In the style of Emily Dickinson
You could not hear a Symphony
If all you heard were a Noise —
Nor could you see a lovely dance
If you saw only Poise.
You cannot figure out the Rules
If you don’t want to know —
Nor can you write a Story true
If your Heart’s not aglow.
There’s Something Whispered in the Arts
That Logic doesn’t feel —
But just because it has no Words
Does not mean it’s unreal.
