So beautiful to see
With her face like yellow water,
Left her nutmeg tree.
Her little rope for skipping
She kissed and gave it me
Made of painted notes of singing-birds
Among the fields of tea.
I skipped across the nutmeg grove
I skipped across the sea,
But neither sun nor moon, my dear,
Has yet caught me.
