Subject(s): Beauty; Gethsemane

I've sought for beauty in each bud of Spring;
The small violets; the touch of moss;
The grass: a crimson bird upon the wing;
A bowl of daffodils; slim trees which toss
Their arms and yearn to reach a starry sky;
The grapes of knowledge -- how they would beguile,
My teeth sank deep in lusciousness! Oh, I
Have loved all these, then lost all zest... awhile.
Since winter wind and hurricane is mine,
I rest, no longer chasing beauty's wing
But, oh how marvelous and strange! The shine
Of spirit now invests each earthly thing
And errant, winsome beauty lives with me
Since I have come to know Gethsemane.
