But the restless say .
We have heard her shouting among the mountains .
And with her cries came the sound of hooves .
and the beating of wings and the roaring of lions .
At night the watchmen of the city say .
Beauty shall rise with the dawn from the east .
And at noontide the toilers and the wayfarers say .
We have seen her leaning over the earth from the windows of the sunset .
In winter say the snow-bound .
She shall come with the spring leaping upon the hills .
And in the summer heat the reapers say .
We have seen her dancing with the autumn leaves . and we saw a drift of snow in her hair .
All these things have you said of beauty . Yet in truth you spoke not of her but of needs unsatisfied .
And beauty is not a need but an ecstasy .
It is not a mouth thirsting nor an empty hand stretched forth . but rather a heart enflamed and a soul enchanted .
It is not the image you would see nor the song you would hear . but rather an image you see though you close your eyes and a song you hear though you shut your ears .
It is not the sap within the furrowed bark .
nor a wing attached to a claw .
But rather a garden forever in bloom and a flock of angels forever in flight .
People of Orphalese . beauty is life when life unveils her holy face .
But you are life and you are the veil .
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror .
But you are eternity and you are the mirror . poetry by Khalil Gibran
