CRITQUE OF ART

The most beautiful priceless gems of art
hang not in splendor in great Halls of Fame . . .
or in galleries where skills of hand . . .
has won for many a much honored name!

They're in yon forests, the distant clouds, the sky
Waterfall, bird, beast, and even the sod . . .
In the rippling leaves and the trembling wind . . .
The work of the hand of Almighty God!

There's no human hand that can paint His work
And no living voice can ever declare . . .
The living beauty . . . only enraptured hearts . . .
Can know the pricelessness that is painted there!

Man has succeeded with priceless gems of art
And endowed with the greatest of skill . . .
But when compared with the incomparable creation of God . . .
The most gifted of all is but feeble still!

  12. The best human artists can do is copy. Love it Margie!!

  13. Ditto pat paulk. So many times we love the beauty of what God's created so much, and yet when we try to duplicate it, whether it be in photo's, painting or words, it always falls short of the original.
    This was great, and very insightful.
