Anecdote of the Jar

  I (human) placed a jar (art) in Tennessee (nature), And round it was, upon a hill. Human put the round jar upon a hill in the wilderness. It made the slovenly wilderness surround that hill. Because of this jar, which made that hill different, the slovenly wilderness appeared some kind of code. The wilderness rose up to it, The jar made the hill different form others, so te wilderness admired its specific. And sprawled around, no longer wild. The wilderness finally yielded to it and owing to the jar, the wilderness no longer presented wilderness. The jar was round upon the ground And tall and of a port in air. The jar is upright in the air. It looked so great and unusual. It took dominion everywhere. The jar was gray and bare. It did not give of bird or bush, Like nothing else in Tennessee. Whats strange is that the jar was a lifeless thing. How could it be better than the nature, which had the power to create lives?
    At first two stanzas, it seemed that it was art that gave nature the value. However, when it came to the third one, it presented that it was nature, which created lives, that was worth of art, which was a lifeless thing.
