She is the beauty,
she is the beast.
She is the cursed and the gifted
On who the eyes feast.
She is the doe-eyed fawn
The burdened subtle pawn.
She is the serenity of a moonlit night
The imperfect example of perfect virtue and vice.
She is the darkness, the mistress of seduction.
She is the saviour, the light of salvation.
She is the tender, gentle ripples of an endless stream.
Da Vinciâ€™s Mona Lisa, a poetâ€™s dream.
She is the anger that lives within the deepest seas
The soothing touch, the sweetest kiss, and the sacred symphony.
She is a friend, and she is a foe.
The familiar stranger who walks with you on a lonely road.
She follows you in devoted silence.
She is the greatest strength that grows with every sunrise.
She is the humility, she is the pride.
The grieving widow, the blushing bride.
At her bosom, she cradles a new life.
The naÃ¯ve child who grows into a lady fair and fine.
She is the betrayal, she is the faith.
She is the devil, and she is the saint.
She is the magic that shows you stars in an empty sky.
For her his life, valiant Lochinvar sacrificed.
She is eternal damnation, she can destroy you.
She is the elixir of life, the angel who can save you.
She is a miracle of the Heavens, the most wonderful.
She is a woman, the beautiful.

Beauty of nature
The scenic view of
And the beautiful valley
Makes me curious
About natural beauty.
Merry with birds
I see a dream
Flying on a broomstick
I find myself exploring
Speaking through words
I can feel the beautiful
And look at the beauty
I vow to make nature
Throughout the world
As nature is as precious

Law of nature
Through the mist of fog
Sunbeams enter this earth
Dancing merrily upon the soft grass
Fragrance of flowers
Whistling wind in
Ah! What a scene.
Rainbows showing colourful bands
Faint rain touching the earthâ€™s surface
Lambs bleating on the stubbled plain
Chuckling of a brimming brook
As if it gives a glimpse
Maturing sun upon
Merrily dances to and fro
Mingled with joyous crops
All of a sudden serenity
Slowly the silver sphere shines
Along with the twinkling stars
A melancholy song
Keeps the lover around
Itâ€™s the time for night to rule with fear
In a slow pace, every nook and corner darkens.
Whatâ€™s the law of nature?
Just like a human life
Happiness on one side
Sadness on the other.
