In cooking the proper use of spices is important to many dishes, and so it is that poets in English should make use of foreign words and phrases to enliven their pieces.

It is funny because I have hesitated thinking it was disingenuous but hell, my husband is Sicilian and I pick up beautiful words/phrases. Why not use them? Or any else I stumble upon if they work.

"Should" as a prescriptive is wrong. Substitute "may" and you will have something.
