    BEAUTY

Please, Beast. Let's not talk of it. The

flowers are exceptional. Is it hard keeping

a garden like this?

 

    BEAST

This garden is... I regret that its beauty

is a deception. Each rose dies, and another

must take its place. But if you don't look

closely, you miss the death, and the garden

appears as one perfect, continuously

blossoming flower.

 

    BEAST

    (sings)

IN MY GARDEN

BLOSSOMS TUMBLE

FLEETING GLIMPSES

FADING FRAGRANCE

WHAT YOU DO NOT KNOW

 

TURNING BEAUTY

INTO ASHES

STEALING MOMENTS

HOLDING BLOSSOMS

WHAT YOU CANNOT KNOW

 

WAITING

HOUR UPON HOUR UPON HOUR

STEALING

ESSENCE AND SUBSTANCE

MARKING THE DISTANCE

BUT SWEET TURNS SOUR

 

(She takes his hand and they dance.)

 

    BEAUTY

    (sings)

IN YOUR GARDEN

BLOSSOMS FLOURISH

FADING, YES

BUT FAST RENEWING

LIKE I'VE NEVER KNOWN

 

WAITING

HOUR UPON HOUR UPON HOUR

WAITING TO SEE WHAT-

EVER YOU'D SHOW ME

BUT SWEET TURNS SOUR

 

(She breaks away from him gently.)

 

    BEAST

SWEET TURNS SOUR

 

IN MY GARDEN

I WOULD KNOW YOU

FLEETING GLIMPSES

SAFELY HIDDEN

WHAT YOU'LL NEVER KNOW

NEVER KNOW

 

(He gazes at her sadly, interrupted by the

appearance of a small animal.)
