All Things Lovely

Rating: 4.3
Lovely things begin with the sunshine.
Her rays illuminate faces
So that smiles can be seen.
Her love so bountiful
She shares with the world.

Next on the list is friendship.
Her bonds hold giants safely
Over ledges. Her eyes magnify
To infinity the good,
And make minuscule the bad.

Runner up is the gentle tear.
Her screams chase fears,
And streams wash away sorrow
For all.When joy bursts boundaries,
She bubbles and blossoms.

Next in line is patience.
Her grace eliminates wars.
Her foundation is love.
Her nature builds friendships.
She removes evil from the tongue.

Finally, and on par with sunshine is time.
She makes way for patience to ripen.
She allows friendship to crystallize
Into excellence. She replaces sorrow
With the hope of a better tomorrow.

Yet these are useless without people.
With arms to lay in the sunshine,
And bodies that keep the hearts of friends,
With whom you can share your tears,
Even if it is with time to grow patience.

I dont like the way this poems lays out on paper. It is to refined and not enough raw emotion either. On the good side, there it is nice that the author characterizes the virtues with identities to make them appear as if they are alive.

This is a supremely lovely poem, which affirms the better part of our human nature in celebrating five blessed things: sunshine, friendship, a gentle tear, i.e. sympathy, patience and time. I was surprised to see time so prominently placed. Many lyric poets consider time the enemy of all lovely things because it places a limit on their freshness and allure. But you persuasively list three blessings of time, including SHE ALLOWS FRIENDSHIP TO CRYSTALLIZE INTO/EXCELLENCE (wonderful!) , and have convinced me of a whole new outlook on that WINGED CHARIOT HURRYING NEAR.
