Virtuosity is great Skill in Music, or other Artistic Pursuits; while Flair deals with Style and Originality. Together they make Poetry tempered by the flair of nature in an effort to overcome mediocrity and so traverse the path of those historical figures who displayed virtuosity.

Are you awake that you should shake So violently upon your bed? But foolish thoughts such as these Are meant to be the food thats fed To a man that's delusional, A man that's only partly full, A man unwilling to be sure; Thoughts cannot the answer procure. For though I think you are asleep, And dream on in eternity. Where else are dreams to take us to? Than the realm untouched by what we See with our eyes, hear with our ears; For it reveals to us our fears, Hopes, desires, our faith in the love That still fires our hearts (doth renew). Then say to me, awake my friend! Do not remain there, do not end Your days before your time has come. Return to me, and before you Wake knowingly search and take from Your dream what you sought while awake; For else dreams are but dusty shelves, And are as wanting as the stake That's got only martyrs ashen Remnants about fires cold remains. Yet the one whose sought out in dreams What he's searched for in life and claims Understanding of what is seen Beyond the senses of his waking state Challenges what was his own fate. For though violently he should act When wresting with worries of life, His dreams afford him this small fact, Knowledge of how to end his daily strife.
