She's spotless like the flow'ring thorn With flow'rs so white and leaves so green, When purest in the dewy morn; An' she's twa sparkling rogueish een. Her looks are like the vernal May, When ev'ning Phcebus shines serene, While birds rejoice on every spray; An' she's twa sparkling rogueish een. Her hair is like the curling mist That climbs the mountain-sides at e'en, When flow'r-reviving rains are past; An' she's twa sparkling rogueish een. Her forehead's like the show'ry bow, When gleaming sunbeams intervene And gild the distant mountain's brow; An' she's twa sparkling rogueish een. Her cheeks are like yon crimson gem, The pride of all the flowery scene, Just opening on its thorny stem; An' she's twa sparkling rogueish een. Her lips are like yon cherries ripe, That sunny walls from Boreas screen, They tempt the taste and charm the sight; An' she's twa sparkling rogueish een. Her teeth are like a flock of sheep, With fleeces newly washen clean, That slowly mount the rising steep; An' she's twa glancin' sparklin' een. Her teeth are like the nightly snow When pale the morning rises keen, While hid the murmuring streamlets flow; An' she's twa sparkling rogueish een. Her breath is like the fragrant breeze That gently stirs the blossom'd bean, When Phoebus sinks behind the seas; An' she's twa sparkling rogueish een. Her voice is like the ev'ning thrush That sings on Cessnock Banks unseen, While his mate sits nestling in the bush; An' she's twa sparkling rogueish een. Variation. But it's not her air, her form, her face, Though matching beauty's fabled queen, 'Tis the mind that shines in ev'ry grace, An' chiefly in her rogueish een. PRAYER FOR MARY.
