The Beauty

Nor words of a prophet
Or depths of desire
Nor angels besought us
Or past lovers die

Nor citadel to conquest
Or innocence defile
Nor abundance to profit
Or lust soil the eye

Nor shackle to enslave
Or violence to obtain
Nor patience to torment
Or failure to contain

Nor cause to be wounded
Or intentions tested
Nor affection manipulated
Or the beauty undermined
