The dress

I am the sea daffodil, 
Half-bud, half-girl,
But tomorrow is my last night, 
When my sisters dress me white, 
I am a flower among the waves
And my love is carried by them. 

I am ready to blossom 
Under the saffron moon, 
He will collect me with a bow
And kiss me shortly over my brow, 
I will whirl my long milky petals 
As I listen the voice of my beloved. 

Now the birds will sing
Like they sang to a king, 
A diadem is placed on my head 
 And in my heart my eyes can read: 
I am the Rose of Alexandria 
My beloved is mine, and I am his.
