by Vernon Waring
(King of Prussia, PA)

What is more useless than beauty?

it's nothing more than an arrangement
of features that please the eyes
a form of visual perfection
that inspires awe
a whim of god to distribute it
in modest numbers

but it still works its magic
when it sashays down a street
and children at play stop
as if a goddess is in their midst
