Beauty in Art & Music

Perhaps there are meanings to be found in all art, even the most beautiful and transcendent. But I would be satisfied with the sheer enjoyment, the spiritual fulfillment in the experience of one moment of beauty. One such expression or suggestion from the pen of W. H. Auden goes:

But the beautiful are content with the sharp notes of the air;
The warmth is enough.

(from Orpheus, 1937)
