Astarte Syriaca.jpg   Yorkshire rose.svg

I ask no more from mortals
Than your beautiful face implies,—
The beauty the artist beholding
Interprets and sanctifies.
Who says that men have fallen,
That life is wretched and rough?
I say, the world is lovely,
And that loveliness is enough.

~ Robert Williams Buchanan ~
