String of Pearls


I gave my love a string of pearls

Taken from the deepest sea

She stooped and plucked the nearest flower

Gave the pearls back to me


I gave my love a bowl of fruit

Shipped for her across the sea

She reached her hand into the sky

Took the cherries from the tree


I gave my love a costly soap

All set in a silver tin

She danced and laughed and rubbed the flowers

Of lavender to her skin


And I would give my love a book

Of written words in the finest script

She took the book and laid it down

Offered me her own true lips


I gave my love a lover's kiss

For I had no more to give

She took my gift, she gave it back

With her ever sweeting breath
