Ah! Beauteous Maid - Raoul Comte de Soissons

Ah! beauteous maid,
Of form so fair!
Pearl of the world,
Beloved and dear!
How does my spirit eager pine,
But once to press those lips of thine;—
Yes, beauteous maid,
Of form so fair!
Pearl of the world,
Beloved and dear!

And if the theft
Thine ire awake,
A hundred fold
I'd give it back—
Thou beauteous maid,
Of form so fair!
Pearl of the world,
Beloved and dear!

Raoul le Bon, Comte de Soissons (1180 – 1235) France
