HOW TO SEE AN ANGEL

HOW TO SEE AN ANGEL

A Poem by Eagle Cruagh

 
HOW TO SEE AN ANGEL
 
Awwww ! you know ,we see it everywhere
She is beauty and she is near
Who is beauty ?
It is she, herself, near me
My world, my dear

What ? you spoke of beauty ?
Of course and where ?
Looking up at her like in to heaven
And she who brings me there
Describe her

Certainly , catch an Angel
Bring me the wings
For I need gossamer things
Let me see a child at play
And you have seen all I can say

What about Beauty ?
I don`t know, I am mortal you know
She is my girl that`s plain to see
And there you have it , beauty
I know what she brings to me

An angel`s voice with silky wings
And a lovely shape and other things
But all is wasted , deep down, more
Unless you hear the tortured soul
That grieves for life and loves the poor

She is pathos, empathy, love
But that is empty as sky above
What is beauty, a loving way
Loving God as he looks today
Abiding you and loving me, hey

That may be beauty but who can say
For mortal man to describe his girl
Is like forcing ocean waves to curl
Who am I to write this way
About such an indescribable play

Tripping across her features when she smiles
Gazing out across the miles of breathless
Plains filled with the treasure of God
And back to hold his leaves of grass
Not yet touching , not near , always less

For no man yet has even closed this wondrous scene
This realm of man and yet not touched
A hint perhaps, but still unseen
Describe beauty in a little smile a tiny curl
You see, beauty is my girl

I loved the title. It pulled me in. Before I even began to read your words I thought to myself, "why, you lay down in the snow". Of Course.

who are you to write this way
whoever you want to be
beauty inside and out this piece is
like forcing ocean waves to curl-truly love that line
love is what we as an individual make of it
thank you for sharing
