What is this thing called Art ? It's what you've seen
And see again because a human hand
Adjusting Nature makes you understand
That the admixture has new ways to mean.
Its forms are legion and its contents too:
People and things portrayed, or lyrical
Lines, or colour-swathes oblong or spherical
Whose patterns used to be unknown to you
But have become your friends (whether their source
Be round the corner or Antipodean,
Whether the work be light or Sisyphean)
Thanks to the Artists who wrought well, of course
-- And to Ms Hossack, who released that stream
Of Art to vivify your deepest dream.
