To Be Homely Is Lovely - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Women of beauty!
The intellectuals and the executives,
Simple with no extravaganza,
Still command men’s awe.
Others, glamorous, lascivious,
Or in excess of costumes and cosmetics,
Would evoke in you a liberality.

Be simple and homely;
You’re winsome and comely.
