True Beauty (Reprise)

True beauty emanates from deep within
A loving and a sympathetic soul
Much deeper than mere surface of the skin
True beauty shines from one who’s heart is whole

It matters not if one is slender or
Bountifully proportioned, whether one
Is dark or light — it matters so much more
That in true self respect each day’s begun

And carried through with calm serenity
For such brings radiance to any face
The body’s motions harmonious be
Reflecting thus an inner sense of grace

The loveliest of people always are
Those who within themselves are not at war

A poet is the strangest sort of soul
You in this life may e'er expect to meet
More broken even while more truly whole,
Innocently intending well, more sweet

Than any but a five year old should be
Unfit to meet a callused world's demand
Or to behave aught expediently
All grace in flight; an albatross on land

Do not the all too common error make
Do not fall into the too easy trap
Avoid the fatal egoic mistake
Imagining that poet be a sap

Powerful spirits classic and antique
Give voice when poets ope their mouths to speak
