Beauty Analyzed

To a less than discerning eye Illusive beauty is not found. An artist may observe it there In any ordinary thing. There is beauty not apparent To a less than discerning eye, Clear to an enchanted lover Gazing at his beloved one’s face. A child may think of his mother As being the fairest of fair. To a less than discerning eye Her innate beauty is not seen. We each observe in our own way This world in which we all must share. The beauty that we find not there To a less than discerning eye. Rewritten for correct form

Perception is so important to our state of mind, Joyce. Beauty always seems to eminate from those we love. Your form appears perfect. I took my down for a rewrite. Wishing you success in Dr. Ram's contest! Love, Carolyn

That is so true Joyce we sometimes do not see the beauty that someone else does -we rarely see inner beauty. Lovely poem. love phyl
