Where Is Beauty, In The Flowers Or In The Maidens Strange?


Where is beauty, whether in flowers
Of maidens exquisitely beautiful,
Meeting strangely,
Where is it?

When praise I the flowers,
Held in by their exquisite beauty,
I think it,
There is nothing like that,
So natural and lovely,
So fresh and fine.

But when find I the maidens
Standing before,
So beautiful to see,
Bowling me out
At the first glance,
I find yself at an awkward position.

Now have I come to the conclusion,
The maidens too can be like flowers,
A few of them fail the flowers
And a few flowers too fail the maidens.

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
