My ardent passion that I place above
Every thing else of my mortal life!!
Wish I could probably make you my wife
If you were a lady, I would love and wed.
Decorate on every night my cozy bed
With flowers and light candles around it
To cause your white body's every bit
Shine with more lustre than that Sun.
"If ever, by God, I truly loved someone
'Tis no other woman, nymph, belle or dame",
Thus I would swear by the holiest name
Of Apollo the nurturer of the Muses nine,
"It is but you, for me the most divine."
