Subject(s): Envy; Happiness; Women; Joy; Delight

Somehow Life had passed me by
And left me gazing on,
With envious eyes, the things
That happy women don:

Their rosy cheeks, their sparkling eyes,
Their gleaming, snow-white teeth --
The red of joy in well-kissed lips . . .
Things happy loves bequeath.

And then that day . . . that glorious day . . .
I looked into your eyes,
I felt myself take on these things
That loving women prize.
