Sonnet 12: Nature’s Beauty Does Not Give But Only Lends - Poem by David Wood
Nature’s beauty does not give but only lends;
Youth’s beauty lasts only but a short time
Age racks the body that nature boldly sends
And worries make infirmity a crime.
Look in the mirror and what do you see?
Has nature given you its beauty gift?
What is the image staring back at thee?
Are you pleased with this sight and get a lift?
But despite the wrinkles of a future age
We must take advantage of nature’s charm
And not be too eager to turn the page
And to apply natures sweet lemon balm.
If nature failed to send you its beauty
Make sure kindness becomes your main duty.
