I wrote this poem in May, 2014. I was at Target in Kohler, Wisconsin. This year, I wrote a shorter version of the poem. I like both versions.

“Carolina Spring Beauty”
“When the artist is truly the servant of the work, the work is better than the artist; Shakespeare knew how to listen to his work, and so he often wrote better than he could write; Bach composed more deeply, more truly than he knew; Rembrandt’s brush put more of the human spirit on canvas than Rembrandt could comprehend.”
