With today’s modern medical advances in the world of plastic surgery, we tend to focus on all the ways we can make ourselves more beautiful; however, we sometimes forget to focus our attention on the appearance of beauty in other aspects of the world. One occasionally forgotten beautiful art form is poetry. Did you know that April is also Poetry Month?
Poetry is an art form appreciated worldwide for its ability to paint vivid pictures through structured, well-chosen words. Poetry can inspire, enchant, and move us. Take a “mental beauty break” and get lost in verse in honor of Poetry Month. Take a moment and enjoy the beauty of love expressed by one of the world’s most celebrated and renowned poets, Lord Byron:
She Walks In Beauty by Lord Byron
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!
Beauty is all around us. It is in the smiles of the people we meet, the world around us, and in the mirror. Beauty is not always easy to see and can be hardest to see in ourselves. Maybe you feel like it’s hidden behind a few extra pounds or it has faded with time; whatever the case may be, let Pinsky Plastic Surgery help you find your inner beauty.
