Beautiful World

Learned poets have said beauty is to enjoy
Like fresh flowers always give you joy
Don’t attempt to pluck or destroy
Not to play with it as simple toy

Thing of beauty is joy for ever
Ever lasting and fading never
Liked by eyes and smelt by nose
Fresh fragrance of flower like rose

Is beauty confined to physical appearance?
Does inner beauty find no substance?
Is that look so important and impose?
No matter whether it denies or trust repose?

Beauty not to be taken from sex point of view,
It is acknowledgement of grace and due
What matters most is simple praise and fact?
Leaving behind all games and not to look suspect

Even God is another name for beauty
Universal acknowledgement for kindness but not pity
We al raise out hands for its grace
Meet all with happiness and embrace

There lies beauty in everything around
Happiness and joy everywhere found
This speaks good and seems so sound
Love spell all over relations bound

It may not spread hatred but only brotherhood
It may not confine to area or only neighbourhood
It has its own role to play and not hide
Everything so open and nothing to confide

History may not repeat the bloody wars fought
Beauty has always ruled and cooperation sought
Queens, princess were married for the sake of peace
Not to shed blood but for stability and life at ease

We may not undermine the essence of beauty
Protect it from harm and consider it as duty
Let us praise and preserve it as God’s gift
No fight, no tension and with out any rift

    A beautiful world of verse did you create! Beauty lies in the eyes of those who see. Best wishes. I am a newcomer to this site. I just had a glance through your poems and was highly impressed. In course of time I will take time to read and comment on them. Meanwhile I would like you to know that I have pasted here a collection of my poems on the well known social worker late Baba Amte. I think you would be interested in knowing more about him and his work. I would like you to kindly go through some of them at your convenience, give your valuable comments and help me spread his universal message.

    I three of your poems including beautiful world, I especially like when you said God is another name for beaty. Your poems are good and carries strong messages. The rhythmis a bit singsong. It feels as if you are focusing on rhyme too rather than using strong metaphor. But they are good generally. I like how you tend to focus on serious issues. Thanks for commenting on my poem I just place a new one and I will appreciate your comments and honesty.

    God has given man everything to live in like good air, good water, good food, etc., but it is the man who pollutes them and makes the life miserable.

    we all have that rage when we open the newspaper and turn the page.
    war and destruction everywhere and it seems like there's no one to care.
