Beards Revisited

     Beards Revisited

I’ve re-considered.
Noticed that some men look more good-looking;
Handsomer, more striking than they were before.
Think David Niven, Errol Flynn and Ronald Colman: men of glamor;
(I’m the generation ‘dinosaur’).
I’ve looked around with eyes anew.
Beards sculpted, youthful,
Framing cheek, mouth, jaw –
Renewed my view, my attitude,
Giving much more latitude
And softening perspective.
In conclusion, seeing beauty
Where I saw no possibility.

To those I criticised –
I do apologise.
