Beauty


Sighting her in opposite mirror
Like a boundless poetic mirage
Finding no words I surrender
To the beauty unfolding its image

Beauty seemed lesser in lily
To compare her to lotus was silly
No simile, metaphor or metonymy
Describe her fathomless beauty aptly

    I thought this was written too well. Sometimes, a poet,
    will reach a very great height in some lines and fall a
    little short in others. This writer has done just that.
    The form and substance of the poem is perfection.
    The greatest poems are only one or two verses in
    structure, because that is all that is required.
    He meets all the standard requirements.
    The writing was excellant but not perfect.
    I gave it a 9. Honestly, it is better than most
    tens; but because this is so good in general, its
    specific imperfection is clearer than that of most poems.

    Tis said that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder.' This 'beholder' certainly has shining eyes - and a tenderhearted pen too. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    Your lines themselves convey
    the boundless beauty of words
    without the simile metaphor n metonymy
    the fathomless beauty is conveyed…

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
