hum. i thought it was obviously a poem about love. "Your hands hold roses
always in a way...". He's saying that her beauty, like the beauty of
nature, put his mind "in wonder" etc.. but what do i know.....

the beautiful changes

the beautiful changes refers to the chances we are given to appreciate any
beauty according to our individual imaginations. In the first stanza the
beauty of the fall meadow is changed as the poet imagines it as a lake with
lilies floating on it. This is the "second finding" he refers to in the
final stanza.

Maybe it's about how "the beautiful" as a noun changes.

I think that Wilbur is trying to say that changes are beautiful because the
way he describes all the changes nature makes and how they are beautiful
changes. I honestly don't see how he could be saying our defintion of
beauty changes but maybe thats just blindness on my part?
