Beauty
By Louise Townsend Nicholl
 
WHY did you stop me, God, that day,
  Upon my rutted road of living?
Why might I not have kept my way
  And never known your ruthless giving?
 
I should not walk so burdened now,        5
  Nor be alone in this new land,
If all there is of beauty in the world
  You had not pressed into my hand.
