She wove baskets for a living Simple lass Not a penny to her name But a heart so free She found her happiness Floating on the breeze That held onto her memories Of a time when
He came full of wealth Missing something all his life He saw it in her eyes A heart so caged Waiting to be set free
Whisper on the breeze of understanding As you looked into her eyes Sapphire glances Sadness so complete As strangers do pass A match of a kind But he was so blind
He saw kindness A face porcelain laid Dark hair cascading In ringlets Dancing onto her shoulder’s so bare He wanted her too much
When he looked into those diamond eyes Her rags became another’s disguise But when he awoke His mind played a snobbish joke How dare she look upon his face? Tantalising ***** Fool Fake How dare she tempt him With her sapphire sweetness And pureness of heart
Poor child She saw his fear She saw him Caged She felt him Poor child Who had fallen from a moment’s grace?
Some day she will wear diamonds and pearls Someday this child will rule the world One day the noble man will fall a fool Never to stare into the golden pool
She was an angel Come to test The rest of the tale is now Laid to rest
