Analysis of Relative to Nothing



Relative to nothing,
Your blue eyes illuminate
Your facial radiance
Crowned with flaming red vistas.

Freckles like sparkling stars,
Mammaliar perfection,
And I my eyes must avert?
Et impossible madame.

Que belle la femme
Mon coeur court
A la vue de votre
Corps parfait

Vous remercier
Mon amour
Por la vie.
