Souls Of Men

image source

Beauty is heard from

composer's sounds,

it is seen through

the artist's hand.

Its stay may

be ephemeral,

or lie centuries

over the land.

It is felt in

the stillness

of the night,

and comes from

the poet's pen.

But the truest

beauty to

be found,

exists in the

souls of men.

  1. So true, Dave! I've always loved this Van Gogh quote: "I feel now that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people."

  2. Beautiful poem. You're right - real beauty is that inexplicable piece of human nature inside all of us.
