Svetlana more, divine a sight 
Than the angel Uriel, 
Of Leonardo’s delight!
Angel of presence,
Angel of face,
Angel of glory,
Svetlana, you hold 
My heart in this place!

Angel of Earth, 
Angel of verse,
Angel of wind,
Angel across, 
The world I traverse!

Sublime is your sight, 
Leonardo’s delight,
On canvas he paints,
You’re face as a saint.
Flaming wave hair,
Lips tender kiss,
Eyes bluest bright, 
Skin softest bliss.

Svetlana more, 
Divine as a sight, than
Da Vinci conceived 
On his greatest night!
