On the Importance of Art

As a farewell to National Poetry Month, I offer the following Spring poem:

If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft,
And from thy slender store two loaves alone to thee are left,
Sell one, and with the dole
Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.

-By Sadi, Persian Poet (1184-1291)
