Beauty Isn’t Everything

Beauty isn’t everything,
But it’s really nice;
If we don’t make virtues in-
To some sort of vice

Beauty isn’t everything,
But let’s not be small:
Envy isn’t anything
We should want
At all

Beauty / Always

There is a beauty doesn’t fade,

It’s always there for sharing;

The heart that clothes itself in love

And radiates its caring


But there’s a secret rarely said,

Though out there for believing:

Love wears a chain around its neck

From each and every grieving


It tries to lift from off the backs

From those it loves, as duty —

For strong indeed are those who live

A life of love

And beauty
