The True Beauty

The True Beauty composed by Thomas Carew

The True Beauty Hindi Explanation

He that loves a rosy cheek
Or a coral lips admires,
Or from star-like eyes doth seek
Fuel to maintain his fires;
As old Time makes these decay,
So his flames must waste away.

वह व्यक्ति जो अपनी प्रेयसी के गुलाबी गाल को स्नेह करता है अथवा मूंगे के समान उसके लाल होठों की प्रशंसा करता है अथवा उसके तारों के समान आंखों से अपनी प्रेम रूपी अग्नि को बनाए रखने के लिए ईंधन की तलाश करता है जैसे ही समय की गति इन्हें नष्ट कर देती है उसकी प्रेम रूपी अग्नि अवश्य ही समाप्त हो जाएगी।

But a smooth and steadfast mind, 
Gentle thoughts, and calm desires,
Hearts with equal love combined,
kindle never-dying fires,
Where these are not, I despise
Lovely cheeks or lips or eyes.

लेकिन एक साफ-सुथरा, दृड़ मस्तिष्क, साधारण विचार, शांत इच्छाएं तथा एक समान स्नेह से जुड़े हुए ह्रदय प्रेम रूपी अग्नि को सदैव जागृत रखते हैं । जहां कहीं पर यें नहीं है मैं सुंदर गालों अथवा होठों अथवा आंखों से घृणा करता हूं।
