     The basis of all beauty is hope,
          It gives no cause to sadness...
     
     The sight of beauty will never age the eye,
          Its only reflection is from the face of others...

     The Grace of beauty bathes the soul with purity,
          It never exists until petitioned by an open heart...

     Beauty gives life to poetry,
          We are as beautiful as we choose to be...

I like these very poetic lines: “The Grace of beauty bathes the soul with purity, It never exists until petitioned by an open heart...” “Beauty gives life to poetry”, I agree my friend. A 7.

Beauty is what we say it is, how accurate this poem describes the abstracts of men. Thank you so much for sharing! Love, Juli-Michelle

Thank Ms. Juil-Michelle. It seems the shorter my days the less abstract a lot of concepts are becoming....I usta long for oldness, thinking with greater maturity comes greater understanding. I was right. Now I can only wish for more time for more life lessons.

I've wrestled with this subject many times, trying to define what beauty is, and each time I've come up with nothing substanticl or verifiable. I believe there is no definition for it by which all of us can be agreed. Neither is it formulaic. It simply is what it is, according to each who beholds it, like the cliched "in the eye (or head) of the beholder. Still your poem has much merit. Best to you. / M

Thanks for the visit Maurice, I don't pretend to define or prescribe a value to beauty except from this writers personal perspective. The older I become the more beauty presents it's hope for me to consort with when I decide to open my heart and receive it. It's scope is so more broadly defined for me now.

deep and meaningful, Charlie. Also I loved that poem that you put above it as an illustration.
