Beauty Lives Only Free

I've searched in gardens the world around

Mingled in fragrance sweet

I sought to find a flower dear

To wrap it up and keep


Polynesian beauty touched my heart

bedazzaled I wandered on

The south, south seas soothed me in it's land

My life as a lily in a pond


The eastern rose grew out of reach

On ancient hills I cried

The promised land gave roots of old

Medieval voices sighed


A new world found after miles and miles

In a state of spirit free

I touched a flower of yellow gold

A bouquet of one I see


Petals soft and strong as beauty flows

So gently, graceful lives

I find to share is all there is

To feel the love she gives
