    What a splendid treat to my eyes! My eyes feel blessed already. This piece is totally wrapped in beauty.

    Does beauty lie in the objects seen
    Or lie in the eyes of the seer keen?

    Beauty seen in the scorching Sun
    Beauty felt in the biting cold
    Beauty heard in the melody of birds
    Beauty smelt in the fragrance of rose
    Beauty tasted in the bitterness of neem
    Beauty found sure in every mean(s) !

    Repetition of 'beauty' here to invoke all our five senses has contributed greatly to the beautiful flow of the words throughout the poem. An exremely beautiful composition, indeed!

    How much beauty does one sees around him depends upon the graciousness of his heart. The title of your poem is right. We should ask for the gift of an appreciative eye that we may see beauty even in the midst of simplicity and sometimes ugliness. (Report) Reply
