Although your pale complexion, I confess,
betrays occassionally a tiny flaw,
I can't deny the soft skin I caress
clothes perfectly the woman I adore.
And who's to say my views are any less
than those that fashion's puritans opine?
By what criteria can they assess
perfection of such singular design?
Whatever preferences we may profess,
we all dance to a sentimental air;
but let us bow before those who possess
a beauty so original and rare.
Now let me gently take the hand I praise,
and thus implore you never leave
