To the pretty girls, running slow

Who let us steal playground kisses

To smiling eyes that seem to know

How to encourage loving wishes


To the maidens, fair and lovely

Who easy win our needy hearts

To the Gods realmed above me

Who perfected the gendered art


To your parents who raised you well

Who gave you your inner strength

To those who find their love in life

Regardless of the gifted length


To every painted flirtatious eye

Who can make a man fall

To all the women in our world

Who bring beauty to it all


I offer only a humble thanks

That you are exactly who you are

For an imagined world without you

Is a night sky without the stars
