I would that I might learn to see the world
As artists do -- that I might be aware
Of instances where beauty lies impearled
In common scenes that all who pass may share
If they have learned to use the seeing eye.
An artist sees not only things. He knows
The common elements which underlie
Our visual sensations, and there grows
In him a keenness of perception quite
Surpassing that of persons beauty-blind.
He looks for color, pattern, texture, light
And shadow, mass, and line, and space. To find
And cherish rich designs composed of these
Is to have found the world the artist sees.
