Poems On Beauty - Poem by Rabindranath Tagore

Beauty is truth's smile
when she beholds her own face in a perfect mirror.

Beauty is in the ideal of perfect harmony
which is in the universal being;
truth the perfect comprehension of the universal mind.

    Everyday I read and re-read Tagore yet each time I invent him in a new way.The profound wisdom and philosophy this man bestowed upon us is truly a blessing to mankind!
    Alas! we have still not been able to think like him.
