Beauty

Dear Editor:

“A Longing for Beauty” by Joe Morris (May/June 2021) is an inspiring piece, encouraging us to find beauty in life of all kinds around us. I was surprised, though, to see the famous lines by John Keats misquoted. Morris wrote:

Beauty is truth, and truth beauty.
That is all we know, and that is all we need to know.

The Dreamer

To dream
Is to stand at the Gate of Creation,
arms akimbo, one foot planted firmly
at the Edge of Eternity.
The other foot solidly moored
In the Patterns of Reality.
Your body humming with the Eternal Dichotomy of advancement
and retreat as one’s life proceeds
to the warm, unknowable embrace of non-being.
