Beast and Beauty
Updated: Aug 28, 2019
Here is a poem I have been working on for a Beauty and the Beast fairy tale retelling I am writing. It is rough (haven't worked out meter and such yet), but I thought it would be fun to post it. Some things in the poem might not make sense until you read my story, and I'll likely change some of it. But here it is for your previewing enjoyment!
When inward graces shine more bright
Than temporal outward faces,
And all things virtuous can unite
The goodness each embraces,
When true love harkens to the call
To ease the suffering heart,
And true love willingly takes the fall
That Magic did impart,
A deeper truth is then revealed
Than stewardship and duty.
When true love lets itself be healed
The Beast will find his Beauty.
