Do not think to be old and to be beautiful
Is not earthly, nor truthful;
As the egret is in the far east,
So are you a symbol of profound beauty
Upon whom even the eyes of the gods do feast
And the mortals character their timeless purity.
The older you grow,
The greater your fair eyes
And the fairer your beauty and your worth show
For what you lack in youth, but wish not to admit,
When you're come of age,you have the wit to express it
In beauteous grace even twice.
Your beauty is well-pruned,indeed
It dies not being made an immortal seed.
