    I think that the parenthesis symbolize the irony between the beauty of war and the beauty of the sea anemone which is as beautiful as it can come

    Beauty is that the which pleases and delight the wordings of immanuel Kant is quoted by the poet in this little poem which is the fact about the beauty. What is actually coming to mind and thinking is beauty is normally described by individual according to his vision of thought and the think most interested in him and therefore varies in different situations according to conveniences.The poem is very nice to read.

    .....the last stanza is astonishing, but it is a metaphor comparing the injury to a beautiful flower... (Report) Reply

    I find this poem interesting how men think of beauty. I think in our society today it is not like that. People don't see the beauty around them. They are disillusion by material things fast cars, bars, fthe fast lane. Fake women. All that lipstick, high heels. What happened to being natural a little blush a walk in the woods. I would love to see what Wifred Own would say about our society today. Unkind, selfish, and cruel. (Report) Reply
