If All The Beauty Of The World

IF ALL THE BEAUTY OF THE WORLD

If all the Beauty of the world
Could be written by me in one line
Would the world be blessed
In reading it?

If all the Beauty of the world
Were one line
And I knew that line by heart
Would the world be happy
By my meeting it
From time to time
Within myself?

If all the Beauty of the world
Were momentarily mine
Would I know
How to give it to others?

These awkward faltering lines
With not much Beauty in them.
