'Simplicity Is Beauty'
What is beauty?
If it is not real
When it cannot last
A day in memory
Cannot lit an ember
Or quench a thirst.
What is beauty
If it is real
When it can last
A lasting memory
Inflames an ember
And quench a thirst.
Is in the eyes
Of the beholder
It strikes from within
No matter what and how
Simplicity is beauty!
