Her smile so clean, so bright; teeth close so lights
May never shine through gaps 'tween pearly whites.
Unmatched in eyes by any other pair;
All other eyes, like jewels, cannot compare.
For this girl's worth is more than simply gems,
Her dress beyond the greatest seamstress' whims
Her voice stronger than twenty angels' song;
The soul within this girl's not felt a wrong.
Would I that her complexion's mine to brush,
That her pretty locks mine alone to touch.
But then her heart'd be mine alone to break,
Her innocence then mine along to take.
So since I could not bear to see her cry,
To watch fresh love, like summer flower, die,
I watch her go, and do not say a word.
She flies away, my life's most lovely bird.
