Here you will find the Poem Beauty And Terror of poet Lesbia Harford

Beauty And Terror

Beauty does not walk through lovely days. 
Beauty walks with horror in her hair. 
Down long centuries of pleasant ways 
Men have found the terrible most fair. 
Youth is lovelier in death than life, 
Beauty mightier in pain than joy. 
Doubly splendid burn the fires of strife, 
Brighter in the brightness they destroy.
