Is There Any Truth In Beauty? - Poem by Ronberge (anno secundo)

Is there any truth in Beauty?
What of the lies beauty tells thee?

Could my beauty not be as worthy
As I make thy Beauty part of me?

Such is Beauty as to make one's sight loud.
This beauty that veils our sense in a shroud.

beauty: that which deters seeing the person.
Does Beauty not conceal what is and isn't?

Yet merciless time holds beauty as a hostage,
Defiles Beauty and scars it with lasting ravage.

Thus the years that pass send Beauty to its resting-place
For vain beauty will yield, to woefully fall from grace.

If beauty should ever lament on age's cruelty,
Let not Beauty forget how little it has wept for me.

    In current mood, I would ask, rather, is there any beauty in truth. But you write this.. er... beautifully, and sensibly raising questions to which we all in our hearts (if ever we could find them) know the answer.
    I am intrigued by the distinction between the capital and the lower case of Beauty and beauty. I draw my own conclusions as every reader will. To me, it reads as an adress to 'Beauty' in parts, in others, a musing. I love that.
    I can't do 'comparing' of poems because each sings differently and to me is unto itself. Request not ignored, just beyond capacity!

    Beauty is in the eye of the be older with dignity and without fear Ronberge imo. Everyone can be beautiful if they believe in themselves and society didn't corrupt our minds with ridicule and fear. Beauty is in action and every other form besides aesthetics if we look and see that way. Lovely write. I will check the other an get back to you. Smiling at you, ageing beautifully.
