Fifty-six devotes himself to beauty.
In beauty, too, he finds his rich reward.
For him, his pleasure also is his duty,
The labor that creates the silent chord
Yielding frozen truths by beauty thawed.

So might those truths like water flow through time;
In eternal moments, the sublime:
Xanthic glints of gold his art makes shine.
