| Cheered her soul like dew a dusty flower.|| 1|
| Fall, like the autumn-kissed leaf.|| 2|
like scimitar from its sheath.|| 3|
| Foremost in his mind,|
Like the keen prow of some on-forging ship.
| Stalks shine|
Like the burnished spears of a field of gold.
| Sweet as are the orchards, when the fruit is hanging ripe.|| 6|
| Warm as sun at noons high hour.|| 7|
