"Though much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield." -Lord Alfred Tennyson

In the palm of my heart,
I hold you here.

Please kiss my fingertips, dear,

With your dewy skin, lit from within.

Rhumba-step, rhumba-step,
My original sin.

In the palm of my heart,
I'll keep you here.

"She walks in beauty,
Like the night of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes."
