In vain I flaunted the poetic names of Byron sort,
And cited those Shelleys we now worship no more, 
for Fate has her own say and God must have his way,
So dearest, hold tight and see my truths interplay: 
Of all examples by the shallow world I'd confess,
I know pearls, heavenly stars, and you be the best,
Who, with a master soul called for the next throne,
Will bring orders and resume faith not for his own.
Although to write my praise of you is an easy poem,
little you know that I've cared much as you for me:
I am content when you beautifully succeed and excel, 
know the treasure in you holds the chants of Holy Grail. 
May the old woe be shuffled off this mortal soil,
May the wintry spring be refilled with genteel guile,
The prize will be yours and the pride be mine.
To the last syllable of past frets and dismay, 
I thank you for being so strong and wonderful.
