Subject(s): Beauty


Clear windows catch your figure as you go
Along the streets in any crowded space,
You know this blade of starlight clothed with grace
Is your own essence. Cloakroom mirrors show
Forms in the background walking to and fro.
And in the foreground you can see your face
As others, edging, set their veils in place
And stand like shadows near you seeming slow --
And loath -- to catch the sunburst glory there
To see the strange eyes and the coppery hair.
Perhaps you do not know how then they stand
Staring wholehearted, while the lights have spanned
This lovely image searching through and through,
And your still face casts its cool look at you.
