Poems On Beauty

Beauty is truth's smile
when she beholds her own face in a perfect mirror.

Beauty is in the ideal of perfect harmony
which is in the universal being;
truth the perfect comprehension of the universal mind.

by Rabindranath Tagore

the simplicity emphasizes the wit and humour.
This is one of his best. His trademark wit and humour are all too apparent here and the poem oozes a childlike simplicity that cloaks the intense metalanguage of his intellect. This verse is a testament to the inebriated state of political correctness in today’s society.
