Perfect Beauty

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

It was a beauty that I saw,
  So pure, so perfect, as the frame
  Of all the universe was lame,
To that one figure, could I draw,
Or give least line of it a law!
  A skein of silk without a knot,
A fair march made without a halt,
A curious form without a fault,
  A printed book without a blot,
  All beauty, and without a spot!

Ben Jonson (c. 1572 – 1637)
