The Perfect Gift
To express what I within me felt
That words already said had failed
I sought things materially made
To offer unto thee instead
So I turned to Jewel pieces
(And these were of dearest prices)
'But then, ' methought, 'how useless!
To bejewel a thing already so glamorous'
Then I thought to pluck thee a rose
And from the finest I'd make my choice
Yet would not the essence disappear,
The moment it would start to wither?
And when I thought to sing thee a verse
From the love song I had long rehearsed
Once again I made a halt, for I thought, ...
....And that night the rain poured
And winds blew and thunder roared
And I, weak with fright, thought
'The world's end has come about'
The thought grieved me while i slept
And when my spirit gave in, i wept.
I mourned not life's untimely end
But to end it without my lady-friend
