Beauty Gone 2008

        Beauty Gone

It isn’t that I was a beauty,

But the mirrors and the date remind me:

Youth has beauty.

 

Grounded in the supple,

“You’re the apple of my eye”, says Nature.

 

Ageing’s mystery,

The muscle mass,

Proportions nose to lips,

Waist/hips

The elasticity replaced…

Cheekbone, with its hostile lines

That droops a jaw, chin through to neck.

 

Oh, heck, maybe the wick

Of beauty really comes

When youthful beauty goes.
