[ Ode To Her Beauty ]

Erect I stand in moments of solemnity
      The earth shatters my teneous senses
   Such moment, where being is solitary
      Her beauty seduces my nightly glances
   Lo! Where love is of no mortal shape
      Faithfully moonlight in her appears
   Her face doth the wild in me rape
      In corners within, and my fears
   Observed was my hiding shadow then
      Disclosed by her kissing eyes, it said:
   "For her gaze I stand not, it is my sin...
      Such gaze conquers, O, my fears are shed!"
   Once again, earth shatters my tenuous senses
      For her beauty blocks the fear in my veins
