    Verbal looks

    To beautiful is to pretty
    The hideous and horrible
    And to graceful the ugly.

    Beautifuled is so prettied
    Like a messy hair curled,
    Cut, pinned, and sprayed.

    Beautifuling is gracefuling
    The homely and ordinary,
    The grotesque and gross.

    Iím not at all sure that I grasp the reason behind some of your unidiomatic usages here.

    I've been reading this collection of American postmodern poems. It was my poor attempt at translating a language that would result to a distortion of another. If I'll translate that to my language it will make sense.
