Beauty

Beauty smiles,
Beauty gives
The benefit of the doubt.
Beauty lives;
Breath in and out.

Beauty wins
Through the eyes of favor.
Or else she can be seen
Still slapped with failure.
Beauty is pretty God-in.

Nothing suffice
Than a beautiful heart-
Nice like rice,
All-serving
And as white as ice.

With beauty the rest
Are as dross.
Put the flesh first;
And the omen is wrinkles.
The heart’s the truest test!
