The Leaf’s Declaration to the Rose

If you were a rose and I a leaf,
My life would be inspired,
And being by your side
Would gratify my heart’s desire.

The leaf beholds the beauty,
The leaf inhales the scent,
The leaf enfolds the flower,
What more to be content?

Most amiable of companions,
In truth, for me, ‘twould be no grief,
To attend you by the hour,
If you were a rose and I a leaf.
