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 --

--Emily Dickinson

Discuss what Dickinson means when she says, "Chase it, and it ceases-- Chase it not, and it abides."
Try to give examples of how trying to make something beautiful can have the opposite effect.

Ezra Garza | 5 comments "Beauty cannont be given nor earned. Some beauty can go noticed forever and some will never be seen by anyone else. True beauty is the way you think about it and how you share it with others."
- Ezra James Garza

I think that people who try to chase beauty end up losing its true meaning or sense all together. For example, one time I was watching Dr. 90210 and a lady kept going back to have plastic surgery to the extent of becoming unrecognizable to those who knew her. She was chasing beauty but was not able to attain it because somewhere within her transformation she had lost her vision of it.
