The Most Beautiful


She is the most beautiful

Everybody says so

She does not have the smoothest skin

Neither does she have the best face or body

But she is the most beautiful

She is not the most intelligent

She did not have the best voice

But everybody called her

The most beautiful

Her beauty was not for the eyes to appreciate

It was for the heart to see

An inner beauty

This is not located in her blood

Nor in her flesh

But deep down her heart

An inner beauty that reflects on her face

And makes it the most beautiful face

A beauty that makes her skin glitter

Like the stars in the sky

A beauty that reaches out to the poor

To give them food and money

To give them hope of a brighter tomorrow

A beauty that lustful men might never see

A beauty that is light

For those living in darkness

A beauty that is hope

For those who are down

A beauty that is company

For those who are lonely

A beauty that is joy

For those who are sad

A ravishing beauty

An adorable beauty

An expensive beauty

Her inner beauty

The most beautiful of all the most beautiful

Poem of the Day

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
