Treasure Island

Shannon Snyder

(07-17-1994 / Anaheim)

beauty is...


Beauty is the birds and the bees
Beauty is the songs in the trees
Beauty is but nature and
Nature is but beauty

The things around are beautiful and
The things inside are even more
But beauty is only
What we want it to be

As life shortens and pollution overtakes
Beauty is eaten away
As man dominates, beauty fades
What is beauty that we cannot see

Without the beauty only we remain
The cold mind of a human
No meaning and no shame
No beauty and no flame

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
