Beauty Recasted (A Sonnet) - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan
Sighting ‘beauty’ on your beautiful visage
It seems quite unreal that it shall one day decay;
Your mother’s countenance still hoist beauty’s vestige
That surely must have glorified her younger days.
Today I am bewitched and entangled in your beautiful spell
So I hover around you like a butterfly lost in the garden of Eden,
My thoughts proceeds to you and there it dwells
Mesmerized by the magic of a promised heaven.
Let me then pen down your beauty and preserve it in my verse
So that posterity can turn back & behold you when time stares you bland,
But if time is to obliterate can beauty in verse
Be preserved for future in my seemingly frivolous chants?
Yes, something can be salvaged from the past
From Homer’s Iliad is not Helen’s beauty still remoulded and recast?
