Beauty

Beauty

 Beauty is sweet music, tender, joyful, or sad
Soothing for the heart in times good or bad
 
Beauty is the flaming sunset—colorful and bright
Illuminating the horizon with a blazing light
 
Beauty is a graceful swan, gliding on a lake, fine and delicate
Snowy white feathers, gleaming, perfect and intricate
 
Beauty is a red rose—the color of life-giving blood
Without blemish, tiny and perfect, is a fair rosebud
 
Beauty is a sparkling stream with its chuckling call
It is also in a rushing, roaring waterfall
 
Beauty, in human form, is the goddess-queen Psyche
She, by the wise Fox, is called Aphrodite
 
Beauty is in the earth; hidden diamonds, rubies, many a wondrous gem
They dazzle the eye, and for many a king is a treasured emblem
 
Beauty is a majestic horse, tall and proud
Whose noble head is high, and whinny loud
 
Beauty is the topmost tree in an oaken forest
Strong and ancient, reaching up with branches highest
 
Beauty is the etched lines in an aged man’s face
Smiling on his family—full of joy and grace
 
Beauty is in speech, story, song, and poem
Words mixed and put together to create a wondrous anthem
 
Beauty is in this world; it is everywhere
Amid darkness, it shines royal, bright, and fair
 
All this wonderful, stunning beauty God created for us to see
To enjoy, love, remember, and that in itself is beautiful, all can agree
