"Without Art" by Syd Stewart, Poet/Educator

without art /
there would be no color
no song to sing / no poem to read

without art /
there would be no freedom
no reason to believe

without art /
no reason to dream
no reason to teach
no students to reach for the moon

without art /
no space to create
no air to breathe for you and me
no country tis’ of thee
no liberty

without art /
we would all be bland
robotic pieces of sand
no oceans deep or mystery
