HOGARTH PHRASIS Inlets of Beauty recited

INLETS OF BEAUTY
Shell like and thin,without and
within,whose surface naturally
co-incide.Straight rays from the
eyes,horizontal,perpendicular,
grace with beauty personified.
Simplicity,intricacy uniformity
 Quanitified.inlets of beauty
evident,entertaining the eye
glutted with variety.A plain
space,pleasant to see,scroll
and volute in symmetry,surprised 
by mimicry to avoid regularity.
Simple,distinct enjoying with
ease, in cone form or pyramid
will ever please.Allegory,riddle
where angles amuse,magnitude
ill-shaped,adds greatness to grace,
a broken line to enhance each
face.Lines  entwine,twisting
then un-wind.Serpentine,well
composed adds variety to art,
waving,dotted or straight,elegant
grace in our eye will impart.

From Hogarth’s Analysis of Beauty

*A Phrasis is a structured verse where the poet uses selected prose phrases of another writer’s(not a poet)  to compile  unique poetry therefrom as a tribute thereto,the word phrasis is Greek for phrase.
