Fairest beauty


Thou fairest beauty thou art called
You who graced the earth with thy beauty and smile
You who endowed and blessed the earth with thy presence
Thy bright eyes feed'st the skies with thy gradience

Mine eyes and heart troubles me; a mortal war
How to divide the conquest of thy sight
Rubbies and diamond not as precious as thou
Thy beauty has made men slaves

The heart of men held captive by thy beauty
Roses of sapphire, Athena envies thy beauty
As if struck by the arrows of Cupid
I can't but say I'm enchanted by thy beauty

And simple truth miscalled my simplicity
If I speak only of thy beauty I'll be wrong
But my words alone can't express all the good qualities
So I rather speak only of thy beauty

Shine forth like the stars damsel
Let thy light shine forth to all men
And thy good deeds and good heart a lamp to all
Let them glorify God thy maker

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
