Maria Theresa - Poem by Jasper Abcede

Take heed to my words my beauty Maria
For you are with beams of hopeful morn dias
Cherish your worth declared from your birth
And sealed by a mother who laid thee to earth.

Thy pearls and diamonds are a toil of sweat
Squeezed by a father that hardly took rests
More precious than jasper and topaz and jade
So don't let others to crush you to bleed.

The hums of lullabies from your childyears are rhyming
Can still be heard with your heart's loud beating
Instilled is the love so white and so pure
Never to be wasted by those rascals and fools.

So, I plead unto you, Oh lovely Theresa
Be cautious, be smart, astounding young fella
Thou deserved to be loved and not be neglected
By your prince if thou learn how to wait while you jig!
