Half dressed in palest pink

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

once again you don your pearls, now also strung with beads of jade
half dressed in palest pink you stand exposed to all who hurry past
few hesitate to see you blush, as bully clouds crowd round
you shiver in your fine attire; the sparkle from your jewellery dims
