What is beauty, what is perfection
Beauty is.
Then man recognizes beauty,
Copies what he finds and
Perfects the beauty around him.

A bird is.
Then man hears a bird concert,
Composes a symphony and
Perfects the beauty of music.

A rose is.
Then man smells its pleasing scent,
Creates perfume and
Perfects sweet-smelling beauty.

The rain is.
Then man sees colors in sun and mist,
Mixes paints and
Perfects his own rainbow.

A butterfly is.
Then it alights on a hand,
Man invents velvet and satin and
Perfects his sense of touch.

A woman is.
Then man kisses her,
Tastes a bit of heaven and
Perfects the beauty of love.

Knowledge is.
Then man learns to use it,
Becomes a wiser being and
Knows the perfection of beauty.
