True poetry (three aspects) – La verdadera poesía (tres aspectos)


 
Three aspects give unity to a piece of poetry: Satyam (truth), Sundaram (beauty) and Sivam (goodness or auspiciousness).
 
At times the poet (the artist) does not know with full consciousness what he is producing, bringing to life; however, if his inspiration (his "madness") is a genuine one, he merits acceptance in Plato’s Republic, among the other true artists. The fruit is what counts ("by the fruit… ")

Lo que cuenta es el fruto ("por el fruto… ")
