What riches so to be immersed in thought,
And in deep thinking, shift these thoughts to you,
Forgetting thus the battles that I’ve fought,
Immersed in carefree peace you bring me to;
Then can I smile as you in visions dance,
And at your pleasure, hold you close to me,
So ‘round the ballroom of my mind we prance,
Uplifting hearts in joyful frivolity;
There in your eyes I see a precious truth,
And in your voice I hear delightful sounds,
Your body’s warmth, my essence so does sooth,
My soul in playful gaiety abounds:
What wealth a simple thought of you can bring,
That even heavied heart can romp and sing!
