Beauty and Beauty
English source: Rupert Brooke

When Beauty and Beauty meet
All naked, fair to fair
The earth is crying-sweet,
And scattering-bright the air,
Eddying, dizzying, closing round,
With soft and drunken laughter;
Veiling all that may befall
Where Beauty and Beauty met,
Earth's still a-tremble there,
And winds are scented yet,
And memory-soft the air,
Bosoming, folding glints of light,
And shreds of shadowy laughter;
Not the tears that fill the years



Rupert Brooke

Rupert Chawner Brooke was an English poet, largely known for the war sonnets he wrote during the First World War.
