Mermaid Beautiful Pink Treasure Mystery Box Altered Art Assemblage

I believe in a Loving Presence that manifests through me 
and in everything around me. 

Greetings everybody.  Just wanted to highlight one of my newest listing at my Etsy shop.  I hope you enjoy looking.  

A thing Of Beauty
A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:

Its lovliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
Therefore, on every morrow, are we wreathing
A flowery band to bind us to the earth,
Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth
Of noble natures, of the gloomy days,
Of all the unhealthy and o'er-darkn'd ways
Made for our searching: yes, in spite of all,
Some shape of beauty moves away the pall
From our dark spirits. Such the sun, the moon,
Trees old and young, sprouting a shady boon
For simple sheep; and such are daffodils
With the green world they live in; and clear rills
That for themselves a cooling covert make
'Gainst the hot season; the mid-forest brake,
Rich with a sprinkling of fair musk-rose blooms:
And such too is the grandeur of the dooms
We have imagined for the mighty dead;
An endless fountain of immortal drink,
Pouring unto us from the heaven's brink.

I thought you might like this gorgeous and beautiful poem by Keats - isn't he just beautiful himself to be able to write like this?  

Remember you are all beautiful to me.  Love and Light to all !

The poem is inspiring and reassuring from start to finish. TFS and your box and mermaid are lovely. I have an affinity with sea items.

What a beautiful mermaid treasure box!

You know, I had never read the entire poem 'A Thing of Beauty.' I had only heard the first line of it used as a trite saying. Oh, what I was missing! Thank you so much for posting the entire poem; it touched my heart and soul. I agree, Keats must have been a beautiful soul indeed to be able to write like this.

Blessings to you, beautiful friend.
