Beauty is a relative thing
that grows within the mind.
Inspired by warmth and tenderness
and to all cares, is blind.

The beauty that, at first, we see
is not the one to trust.
The perfect grace we always seek
lies deep beneath the crust.

The gift of truest beauty
cannot by all be had,
so once you seek and find it,
Rejoice! my friend, be glad!

The time you spend in searching 
for beauty that's plain to see
will be hours of wasted effort 
for, beauty can only be
the bright and inner glowing
we seldom look to see.
