Beauty Is Upon You... (Short Version)

BEAUTY IS UPON YOU…
:
Beauty is upon you like the rose without a thorn.
Beauty is upon you like the dew on grass each morn.
Beauty is upon you like the sapphire shining sea.
Beauty is upon you like the apple on the tree.
:
Beauty is upon you like the sunshine on the Earth.
Beauty is upon you like the day God granted birth.
Beauty is upon you like the wings on butterflies.
Beauty is upon you like the grace that God supplies.
:
Beauty is upon you like the diamond wedding ring.
Beauty is upon you like the season known as Spring.
Beauty is upon you like the little lambs that play.
Beauty is upon you like the snow on Christmas Day.
:
Beauty is upon you like the rainbows up above.
Beauty is upon you like the sentimental dove.
Beauty is upon you like the young bird new to flight.
Beauty is upon you like the shooting stars each night.
:
Beauty is upon you like the dolphins as they leap.
Beauty is upon you like the peace that comes with sleep.
Beauty is upon you like ten thousand whispering sighs.
Beauty is upon you like true love that never dies...
:
Beauty is upon you like true love that never dies...
Beauty is upon you like true love that never dies...

While this poem keeps repeating the title, it's a way to emphasise each facet of beauty. Even so, the poem can be used without this phrase and merely used as a shortened version like this:
:
BEAUTY IS UPON YOU…
:
Like the rose without a thorn.
Like the dew on grass each morn.
Like the sapphire shining sea.
Like the apple on the tree.
:
Like the sunshine on the Earth.
Like the day God granted birth.
Like the wings on butterflies.
Like the grace that God supplies.
:
Like the diamond wedding ring.
Like the season known as Spring.
Like the little lambs that play.
Like the snow on Christmas Day.
:
Like the rainbows up above.
Like the sentimental dove.
Like the young bird new to flight.
Like the shooting stars each night.
:
Like the dolphins as they leap.
Like the peace that comes with sleep.
Like ten thousand whispering sighs.
Like true love that never dies...
:
Like true love that never dies...
Like true love that never dies...

There is a phrase which refers to really being in love with someone and that phrase is to like-like… So this poem version reminds me of that extra meaning.
