As a treat for your sense of Hearing try reading the poem aloud to your self. I love the couplet at the end…timeless guidance from the Bard. Be the Beauty you love everyday and soon your life will be more Beautiful than ever!

Sonnet XXV by William Shakespeare
Let those who are in favor with their stars
Of public honor and proud titles boast,
Whilst I, whom fortune of such triumph bars,
Unlooked for joy in that I honor most.
Great princes’ favorites their fair leaves spread
But as the marigold at the sun’s eye;
And in themselves their pride lies buried,
For at a frown they in their glory die.
The painful warrior famoused for fight,
After a thousand victories once foiled,
Is from the book of honor rased quite,
And all the rest forgot for which he toiled.
. Then happy I, that love and am beloved
. Where I may not remove nor be removed.
