For You my love's unwavering
and ample to inspire;
its passion for You burns red-hot
like a blazing bonfire.

All the year long my thoughts o'er You
captivate and free me;
they form wing-like to my caged mind
which You give liberty.

Like the vast, bottomless oceans
my warmth for You runs deep;
in its depths is my great ardor
that makes great Neptune weep.

Like Helen of Troy Your fair face
surely can launch a fleet
of a thousand ships brimming with
Greeks who'd war by Your feet.

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

Were You deity of Greek myth
You'd be Aphrodite,
a numen of unsurpassed grace
and of such great beauty;

or Athena, goddess of wisdom,
justice, the arts and war.
As deity of lore and truth
You'd shut ignorance's door.

On life's tempestuous seas You'd
foreshadow bright omens
as harbinger of good fortunes
and patron of 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 to pen, Beloved,
that what I have begun
with this poem won't be finished 'til
we're together as one!
