Brighter your shine than all stars in the sky,
Consistently fresh like the air of cream,
Ever remembering how not to dream,
Being for you – gift of flesh and bone so nigh,
My little star,
for your beauty I sigh,
tasty as the sea bream,
Out of my soul-fabrics you made a seam
With which I’ve resisted the urge to cry.
the whole sky is your domain,
Never forget you,
being a pearl to me,
I have no cause to complain,
Heavenly to me is your company.
Than all the orbs in the skies you are their star,
Utmost pleasure to me,
that’s what you are.
