Quote for Today: Robert Francis

I follow Plato only with my mind
Pure beauty strikes me as a little thin
A little cold, however beautiful.

 

I am in love with what is mixed and impure
Doubtful, dark and hard to disencumber
I want beauty I must dig for, search for.

 

Pure beauty is beginning and not end
Begin with the sun and drop from sun to cloud
From cloud to tree, and from tree to earth itself

 

And deeper yet to the earth dark root.
I am in love with what resists my loving
With what I have to labor to make live.
