The Sweetest Loveliness


The wonder of a spontaneously smile
it's been a long long while
That uncontrollable urge of the muscles of the face
an open heart of laughter to embrace

Not the giggling because of a joke
or even the mimicry when we stroke
The fake glimpse around the eyes
while the heart is full of lies

Not the smile we produce out of loss
a smile as seen by the gross
But the real pure thing
a smile not bounded by any string

A moment of the purest pleasure
little diamonds to treasure
Beyond the sun rays of light
clearer than crystal so bright

I wish it to each and all of you
for it will vaporize any woe
in a split moment of divine joy
the sweetest loveliness to enjoy

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
