Pure gentle and honest figure
my owner when with others speaks
before her every mouth stay quiet
any mischief look is disfigured ...
So she perceived in others admiration
in sublime modesty she is compared
to angel who came from heaven to earth
showing miracle thus illumination ...
simple appears to those who regards her
passing by sweet heart looks
that only notices who recognizes her
From her mouth flies when inspired
a spiritual breeze, full of lovingness
that goes saying to the heart, "sighs"
