1-5You’re so beautiful, my darling,so beautiful, and your dove eyes are veiledBy your hair as it flows and shimmers,like a flock of goats in the distancestreaming down a hillside in the sunshine.Your smile is generous and full—expressive and strong and clean.Your lips are jewel red,your mouth elegant and inviting,your veiled cheeks soft and radiant.The smooth, lithe lines of your neckcommand notice—all heads turn in awe and admiration!Your breasts are like fawns,twins of a gazelle, grazing among the first spring flowers.
