The Rise of the Nubian Princess

The Nubian Princess
In C minor; singing the songs
Of freedom foretold.

Chants of the dreaming
Her mesmerizing, sensual, voice
Invokes great passion.

Even the angels must be
Listening as perfect harmony flows
From her lips.

Ah, the creative impulse:
When she sings, everything comes to life
The antipodean garden blooms!

And the white light
From a new galaxy shines on her,
Ever so brightly!
