Sonnet: What Isn’t Beautiful?

What is not beautiful? What isn’t ugly?
’Tis the beholder who decides ably!
Beauty is not just color or contour;
’Tis the perception of the gray-matter!

To appreciate you need two things unlike;
Beauty exists even if you dislike;
Beauty is there in both white and in black;
There is true of Nature, when you think back.

Beautiful’s the wisdom of the old man,
And the silver hair of the old woman;
There is much beauty even in a thorn!
And the wildest flower that you scorn.

Things in Nature have an innate beauty!
Appreciation, our bounden duty.

by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
