Strands of yet wet hair frame your beauty magnified.
Your nose stud winks a flash in the mirror at me.
The tender youthful bloom rushes out from the coconut grove
Only to fuse with your body.

When your eyes blossom in the mirror,
A gentle spring rain begins in my heart.
A sweet melody begins to scatter harmonies around in me,
Just like water sprayed from a shower head.

You spread out your hair to dry, and
My tender desire swings by its strands.
You sit in front of the mirror, diffusing fragrance,
You catch my eye in the reflection with a naughty twinkle
It's like I took a dive from a high peak
Into the cool of the milky ocean.

Your laughter the mirror reflected,
Ringing a thousand tinkling bells in me,
Plucking the strings of a million lutes.

Suddenly, you coalesce into my eyes,
And the mirror dissolves into you.
In the face of your glistening cheeks
The mirror accepts defeat.
