I Compare Thee

I Compare Thee

A Poem by J. B.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
and, oh! How beautiful thee 
must glisten in the eyes of all!
and of mine own,
this troubled mind finds utmost tranquility.
a glistering ray of sun
a soft whisper of natures' pure and radiant voice
has naught the least bit comparison,
for comparison is needed, not. 
Shakespearean words read not thy kind demeanor.
Nor loon or lark have such a beauteous voice.
Melody and harmony; both dissonance in
the presence of one so fair,
yea, indeed one so fair
as there is no compare!
and so radiant is thy body
thy mind
thy soul
such flamboyant flair,
that none but God above
can thee compare.
