Wishes

I only wish
You were a flower:
I pin you on my pocket, close to my heart,
To cherish your fragrance; above all you tower.

I only wish
You were dew:
On my long road, in unfavorable weather,
I am wet with frost; I bathe in you.

I only wish
You were a bird:
I take with me the litte pretty pet
To have your sweet love songs always heard.

I only wish
You were the muse:
I adore the masterpieces,
Passion for you into all my youth to infuse.

But, darling, I am so afraid! If you were
A flower: crowds would feast their eyes upon you!
Frost: folks would venture into wind and dew!
A bird: spreading your wings, high sky to recover,
You would fly off and quit this lover!
Poetry: you are the outstanding verse,
I am not able to broider with words too terse,
Although I dote on you with all my heart!
And thus, I yield to your trend.
Do your part!
My joys of life on you depend...
