Give Me A Thing Of Beauty


Beauty
Enters a room unannounced
It is unassuming
Noticed and this is all that counts
Give me a thing of beauty
Subtle, elaborate

More beautiful when inhabited
Uncontested by a soul
So blessed its mere presence can heal
Those who are contaminated - by it being revealed

Beauty
Exits in bloom with great fanfare
Glad to be of service
It is more than happy to share
Novelties & pleasantries…

…And the splendor they bring
Give me a thing of beauty
It is a beautiful thing
