Beauty Unpraised
By Richard Aldington
 
In France (1916–1918)

THERE is only you.
The rest are palterers, slovens, parasites.
You only are strong, clear-cut, austere;
Only about you the light curls
Like a gold laurel bough.        5
 
Your words are cold flaked stone,
Scentless white violets?
 
Laugh!
Let them blunder.
The sea is ever the sea        10
And none can change it,
None possess it.
