All the breath and the bloom of the year in the bag of one bee: All the wonder and wealth of the mine in the heart of one gem: In the core of one pearl all the shade and the shine of the sea: Breath and bloom, shade and shine, -- wonder, wealth, and -- how far above them -- Truth that's brighter than gem, Trust, that's purer than pearl, -- Brightest truth, purest trust in the universe--all were for me In the kiss of one girl.
