Beautiful Sadness

Quote:
"Delicious tears! The heart's own dew." 
                       Letitia Elizabeth Landon.


Beautiful Sadness

As morn births bold new welcoming relief
in dawn's deepest gasping of wonderment
Life thrives upon true love, not morbid grief
for beauty's depths are purest contentment.

Whether tears are falling from joy or pains
heart and soul together, sweet as morn's dew
with happiness Life's serenity gains
magnificent fruits of treasure come due!

True and so delicious such worthy meals
rewarding our fortitude, hopes and dreams
within such bliss sweetest pleasure we feel
flows forth as clearest waters in cool streams! 

When mortal heart, true master will obey
Faithfulness is born, that will never stray!

Well constructed ode to poets and poetry. Beauty walks this earth in many forms, and can be found in the most unlikely places. You've nailed this one.
