BEAUTY

You can’t perceive the beauty
Until you’ve walked the trail
Of Nature’s mind,
Of Humankind,
If you succeed or fail.

You can’t perceive the beauty
Until you’ve paced the path
Of men in kind,
Of love entwined,
The Whole beyond their half.

You can’t perceive the beauty
Of faith, of heart, of hope,
Until you tread
Rough road ahead
And find the strength to cope.
