My lover kind and gentle ere with me;
He trips the light fantastic—strong, all way.
My Sweetie is a gem uncut, I see.
The largest diamond in rough shows ray
Magnificent in glow and flash of light;
A gem roughhewn is greater far not split,
With manly cadence, voice all strong, his might
Shines forth with force and freedom, joy, all grit.
I try n’er change this man of mine, my prize;
For change might chaos loose upon our house.
“I can stand all with you beside!” he cries;
I n’er would lose this paragon, nor oust.
We are two people steadfast, true and fast
To bind our hearts so love ‘twixt two doth last.
