    O Empress Fair

    “Behold,” he sings, “a desert bloom,
    none ‘fore of such design.”
    O empress fair, what prince would dare,
    but he who’d sing, “be mine.”

    ’Neath all the suns and all the moons,
    what queens have dressed the throne.
    O empress fair, to who compare,
    if so, she’s unbeknown.

    The art of verse, the minstrel prince,
    adores thee, that he do.
    O empress fair, his songs to share,
    his heart and soul for you.

    A blossom ’neath a Persian sky,
    a bloom of desert bliss.
    O empress fair, what scents you wear
    a-blushed in morning mist.

    Your empire of unearthly arts,
    all fashioned from above.
    O empress fair, heed his prayer
    and answer him with love.

    Be of his song, become each verse,
    with all your heart evince.
    O empress fair, pray come, declare,
    come love the minstrel prince.
