Envoy - Poem by Eugene Field

Prince, show me the quickest way and best
To gain the subject of my moan;
We've neither spinsters nor relics out West--
These do I love, and these alone.

    These do I love, and these alone

    Principe, mostrami il modo più rapido e migliore
    Per conseguire ciò per cui mi lamento;
    Non abbiamo né zitelle né reliquie qui nel West-
    Io questi amo, e questi soli.
