Beauty

Beauty is as Beauty does, I hear the scholars say.

For outward beauty only lasts, as it were a day.

 

A lovely flower blooms but once and then so quickly dies.

But the tiny seeds that fall create many more besides!

 

People are as People do, I hear the wise men say.

For speaking is only as the wind that blows away.?

 

Tis' some truth....  Yet Nay!

 

Every word just like a flower ...though it seems to die...

Leaves many tiny seeds of thought to grow and multiply.

 

If truth...Then may we bloom so sweetly, that our seeds may fall;

To create many lovely blossoms, weaving beauty through life's all.
