………….A Beauty Far

Sometimes, there is a beauty far,
So far we cannot see,
A charm of which we’ve but been told,
Or, grace left grudgingly.

Sometimes, there is a beauty grand
Like peaks that pierce the sky
Inhaling so their chests expand
And shoulders fill the eye.

From where we stand, the beauty’s far,
And, longing some shall be
For that which they will ne’er attain,
And’s but a sight to see.

But beauty better than the best
Of all both grand and dear
Is that which we can touch and hold –
The beauty that is near.
