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.
