I once met a young flower

Who is God-given and

A heaven sent

Although she's like an angel

Whose heart to steal away.


For she's the goddess of beauty, and

Her eyes were brighter

Than the stars in the azure sky.


Her love was what I prey on

Love too weighing

like a Mount Kilimanjaro

She's a fair flower that blooms

With her profound essence to

Reflect my lonely life.


I gazed and gazed at the red rose,

Though it was her, or none;

Maybe my eyes blindfolded,

To become the man I'm not.


My mind filled with the rose,

What pleasure it brings!

To the wind of winter and spring,

That blankets my little horse.
