Beauty-calls



Sometimes Jim just shakes his head when I say,
'Gotta go! Beauty calls!'😊






Ecclesiastes 3:11 

He has made everything beautiful in its time. 
He has also set eternity in the human heart; 
yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.



Beauty calls, thus task will wait 
Before the sun falls past the gate 
And tucks the twinkle of today 
Its mementos of fleeting fray 
Into The Land of Far Away 

Beauty calls and bids us pause 
To marvel at its gifts because 
So much of life is harsh and hard 
So much of love is sorrow-scarred 
So much of laughter is tear-starred 

Beauty calls; we should reply 
So small beneath the big old sky 
But tall enough and not too old 
To balk at Duty’s rigid hold 
Beauty’s sheer wonders to behold 

With eyes to see and ears to hear 
And mouths to speak a word of cheer 
It dawns upon us wondrously 
We have the wherewithal to be 
Part of the call and the beauty
