If all the girls -
short, medium and tall,
thin, slim and plumb
with hands - slender and short
to play with the morning dews
or long enough to paint the sky blue;
locks - blonde, brunette or silky dark
let loose on the shoulders
or to swing left to right, and right to left;
eyes - fish-like or almond-shaped
to mock at those of the doe,
walk - outsmarting the magestic swans
or putting to shame the baby elephants;
and lips - full and rosy, sensuous and wavy
decide to stay on the other side of the sea...
what should the young boys do?
be swimmers or avid boatmen
to reach the other side
of the enchanting shore....
