A Soul Enchanted

All these things have you said of beauty
Yet in truth you spoke not of her but of needs unsatisfied
And beauty is not a need but an ecstasy
It is not a mouth thirsting nor an empty hand stretched forth
But rather a heart enflamed and a soul enchanted
It is not the image you would see nor the song you would hearbut rather an image you see though you close your eyes and a song you hear though you shut your ears
Kahlil Gibran
