He was dreaming up verses to “Ode to a Faceless Beauty”.
Although he had never seen her, he imagined her to be an angel.
His dreams always ended in mush – so different from what he was in real life.
The face was never visible – just the profile.
A beautiful profile of a slim, fair girl.
He would try each time to catch a glimpse of her face, but she would disappear in thin air just when his eyes reached her bosom.
His only quest in life was now to find this faceless beauty.
