Poetry Pleases: Truth And Beauty

...So full my heart of mystery and awe
As beauty laid upon my mind her spell
I saw new truths I had not seen before..

John Ayling gains fresh insights into the meaning of life from the beauty of Nature.

In glory came the sunset, gold and red,
As rest in meditation there I sat:
A skein of crying geese flew overhead,
And silently swooped past a preying bat.
As darkness fell the heavens grew more bright
When rose the moon above the shining trees
The stars so near that with my hand I might
Reach up and pluck them if I so should please:
So full my heart of mystery and awe
As beauty laid upon my mind her spell
I saw new truths I had not seen before
And wonders more than any words can tell:
For though the secrets of our life are sealed,
In love and beauty is the truth revealed.
