Rose!—for you my love's unerring
and sufficient to inspire;
its fervency for you burns hot
like a blazing bonfire.

All seasons long my thoughts o'er you
liberate and free me;
they form—wing-like!—to my barred mind,
which you give liberty.

Like the vast, fathomless oceans
my warmth for you runs deep;
in its depths swims my great ardor
for you that the gods do weep.

Like Helen of Troy your fair face
as well can launch a fleet
of a thousand ships brimming with
Greeks who'd war at your feet.

Even Homer's rich, epic verse
cannot do you justice;
his oft-sung poetry pales near
you, a dark-haired goddess.

Were you deity of Greek myth
you'd be Aphrodite,
a numen of unsurpassed grace
and strength so mighty;

Or Athena—godhead of wisdom,
justice, the arts, and war.
As deity of lore and truth
you shut ignorance's door.

On life's tempestuous seas you
foreshadow bright omens
as harbinger of good fortune
and boon of all captains.

Your rare spirit so enrapts me
and carries me along
that the joy of your company
compels me to new song.

I wish at last, dear Rose, to pen
that God joins us as one—
that His will and plan for us are
a miracle begun!

"To have the soul of a poet is to feel with the mind, and to think with the heart."
