O' beauteous Rose, ...in passion pressed, Amid the swell, ...of heaving breast, Let kisses rain, ...upon thy face, As one we meld, ...in love's embrace. For never shall, ...our heart's divide, As in mine arms, ...lay thee beside, I know my love, ...shall ever be, Beloved Rose, ...dear bloom to me, Rising, coursing, ...as river wild, As by thy passion's ...am beguiled. Flowing, flowing, ...to the sea, My beauteous Rose, ...I worship thee.
O'beauteous rose, ...blooming for thee, Fragrance Blowing from the sea, ...drippng dew from thy lips, Velvet kisses upon thy fingertips, ...Raining down upon thy cheek, soft and warm, tender,meek, ...petals opened, Heart set free, ...Fly to thee across this sea, My beauteous rose, ...of eternity.
