BeautyBeauty 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
