Beautiful faces are those that wear
It matters little if dark or fair
Whole-souled honesty printed there.
Beautiful eyes are those that show,
Beautiful lips are those whose words
Beautiful hands are those that do
Beautiful feet are those that go
Beautiful shoulders are those that bear
Beautiful twilight at set of sun,
Beautiful graves where grasses creep,
