It is sweet pleasure here to pen your fame,
That others of your worth may ever know,
Yet to such privilege, words seem so inane
For how to limn the pith from whence it grows?
Still write I must, with this poor peasant pen,
Of riches greater than most eyes have seen;
Of beauty that may not be seen again,
Of that which is, but never yet has been.
What honor great to have but held your hand;
What peerless joy to love a heart so true;
Such wealth bestowed, I stand a humble man,
Pure blessed with fortune that ordains the few.
My sole regret is but one life to live,
With beauty such, whose heart does ever give.
