    As if art should not participate in redistribution & only exist once we're all in heaven.
    I think he was a radical materialist socialist, yet still a believer in the afterlife.

    The greatest art man can ever see is nature. The greatest Artist -God made everything in a unique way. I love art and thus the poem.

    Materialistic man's pursuits have killed beauty in Nature and Art by destroying all natural things of best and beautiful in the world! Ugliness now due to pollution by advanced technology is raising its head everywhere plunging the world in oblivion like autumn season and winter gloom too will follow before spring of new hope of Art will come later after realisation dawn on man of those precious gems man cannot ignore ever...!
