The poem "Beauty" was written by English poet John Masefield. This poem takes the reader on a visual and auditory journey as Mansfield describes the sights and sounds he most appreciates. He expresses his admiration for many of God's creations. Specifically, he mentions dawn, sunset, moors, windy hills, and old Spanish music. He mentions that he particularly enjoys the month of April and its daffodils, spring grass, and soft warm rain.
In the second stanza, he praises "the song of the blossoms and the old chant of the sea," as well as the "strange lands" he has seen from ships. The poem ends by Mansfield expressing that, although all of those things are wonderful, the most beautiful things God has shown him are attributes of a woman. He extols "her voice, and her hair, and eyes, and the dear red curve of her lips."
