Beauty Is the Radiance of Being
Music: The Cuckoo.
|Beauty is the radiance of Being,
Opening a seam of inner sky.
Now we pause a moment beyond seeing,
Not at the heart of things but quite nearby,
In fields where all our deepest longings lie.
Each of us becomes more beautiful
As we are touched by love's angelic grace.
Now life seems more blessed and bountiful,
Delighting in the gift of an embrace,
Meaning more than meaning's eye can trace.
As one can be unfazed or filled with music,
Rejoicing in the glory of a song,
Kind hearts can have more Being if they choose it,
United in a gentle love and strong,
So sweet they dwell in beauty all life long.
