Remote Beauty - Poem by Smoky Hoss

What glory the unseen flower knows
A lost and lovely lilly, or a wild red rose -
Whom the site shall see
Down unfrequented trail, under the tall pine tree.

Transcendence planted by God's own hand
Deep within a withdrawn wilderness land -
None 'cept angels such beauty shall observe
In removed regions where only the wind is heard.

Beauty is shone in vain
When none seek it fain -
It takes the words of a lingering poet
To truly notice, and to show it.

Around the moon floats a glimmering ring
Listen to the heart, and you will hear it sing -
The stars cheerfully join in
As night enters the desert, once again.

Remote vision beauty will show
A day in nature, such depth to know -
Sunrise to sunset
So much to see, coming yet.

It looks for all the unnoticing world
Like simply a night and a day - but, what it regards
Is Life on earth, with
Heaven upon its way.
