Beauty


Beauty
Thrilled me
All my life
And
All my breath
Where my feet
Went
Where my heart
Stood
Where my heart
Burnt

And
To beauty
All to beauty
Gave my Soul
My Inner Soul
Pain and sadness
Full despair
Rotten
Desperation
Al
All became
My companions

Out
Out in the wilderness
To sing went I
Roaming
Skipping
Without joy
Yet
Without thought
Opiate I
Changed my mood
For in desperation
I
Was drowning
Drowning fast
Drowning fast
Yet
I
I to Beauty
Gave my Soul
My Inner Soul
My All, for All.
All to Beauty
All for Beauty.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
