Beautiful Things

These are the things I prize
and hold of dearest worth:
Light of the sapphire skies,

Peace of the silent hills,

Shelter of the forest,

Comfort of the grass,
Music of birds,
Murmur of little rills,

Shadows of clouds that swiftly pass,
after showers,
the smell of flowers
and of the good brown earth-
And best of all,
along the way,
friendship and mirth.

-Henry Van Dyke

A thing of beauty is a joy forever;
Its loveliness increases;
it will never pass into nothingness,
but still will keep a bower quiet for us,
and a sleep full of sweet dreams,
and health,
and quiet breathing.
-John Keats

Truth is beautiful.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wishing you a day full of beauty!
