And Ye Shall Win My Heart
Perchd on wings of claim,
A well nurtured praise, to Beauty, he professd
To whom he forfeited his presence, his illustrious gaze
Ah! But She with him was not pleased
For in his worthless mind, does reason reign?
Nay, the pen and the scroll are not his ways
Lo! May life be a dear with this lost wanderer,
For He is charmd by but Beautys trifling air,
While She is condemnd to hear in his vacant stare
Every Mans stupidity and their crazed flare
And so Beauty to him said in Her defiant stare:
"My eyes have been graced by many suitors with unmatched Beauty
They have been begged by those with unbounded wealth
And though, many were but refined in the art of kindness
None could command My Love, None could command My Respect
Dear Lost Soul, I am not smitten by what I see
Nor Taken by the sweetness of what I hear!
Challenge my knowledge, Teach my genius and Seduce the mind I have well raised
And Ye shall win My whole heart with dizzy delight!"
