Ah! If I get my good ship home

I'll find a tempting spot,

Where mayhap pleasant flowers will bloom,

And there, I'll shape a charming cot.

Where bees sip nectar in each flower,

And Philomel on hawthorn rests,

I'll shape a rustic, sun-kissed bower -

A bower meet for angel guests.

Then she who lives and loves with me,

Sing our days of calm repose,

Sole monarch of the flowers will be -

For Myra is indeed a rose.
