Emily Dickinson - Beauty -- be not caused -- It Is --

Beauty -- be not caused -- It Is --
Chase it, and it ceases --
Chase it not, and it abides --

Overtake the Creases

In the Meadow -- when the Wind
Runs his fingers thro' it --
Deity will see to it
That You never do it --

This poem is better than toppicles it is the truth. It shows how beauty is not what really matters in the end.
