Beauty waits for none

It was a beautiful morning,
of a very fine day,
but I couldn't hear a thing,
of what my friends would say!

A few feet away in a corner,
relentlessly I'd stared,
for I saw a bewitching beauty,
who had left me ensnared!

However hard I tried to control,
once again I looked there,
and I can't explain the joy,
as I watched her talk unaware.

Propriety dawned on me,
and so I turned my eyes away.
And I felt myself in a turmoil,
as my thoughts went astray.

I turned back only to realize,
that she was now gone,
and I felt this was very unfair,
that her name I'd never known.

She'd disappeared before I could blink,
and I couldn't help but think,
What was it that made me spur?
It was just a sight of her.

If only beauty wasn't so rare,
of a smiling princess with silky hair,
of someone soother than autumn breeze,
perhaps my heart would then have peace.

I knew disappointment and I felt pain,
and so I questioned myself again -
Why couldn't she be my 'someone'?
Why could beauty wait for none?

    Good... instead of staring for too long like an uncouth guy, propriety dawned on you! A thing of beauty is a joy forever! But be cautious, not to be swept over by every beautiful thing! !

    You know how to present your feelings in beautiful verse! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
