Such Beauty can it really be born
In this world?
Beauty is commonly seen
Well as something added to a canvas,us
As if the rose's beauty is not the remedy for
For what exactly?
Though people may seem erudite
What truly are they
Other than Confused, Gallant, a beautifully frustrating
Gallantly the Rose is Rosy

The author's comments:
This piece is saying that beauty is superficial and it's in our nature to be "beautiful". The rose is "gallantly rosy", but it is always rosy, so saying that is like saying the person is "gallantly human".
