"The beauty of holiness"

Many people aspire to express themselves in poetry. Although possibly they have glimpsed thoughts rare and luminous enough to shine in verse, not having devoted themselves to a study of the art of poetic expression they often fail in their ambition, and after perhaps a little disillusioning determine to resort to the effort to write good prose.

In this they are probably wise. The desire to express something beautiful is a worthy desire, and those who cherish it should be comforted in remembering that though their ability to write lovely poetry may not be realized at present, the living of "the beauty of holiness" certainly is possible. Countless numbers of unselfish, valiant, joyful, and gentle men and women have led lives that have been true and fine as is beautiful poetry.
