Diamond droplets descend from the delirious dome
That revels in pompous pageantry,
Celestial drums beat in joy
The music of ecstasy,
And a lightning bolt flashes out in a streak,
Quickly, like a mischevious wink.
Below, her eager soul receives
The long-awaited gift
In silence, like a shy nymph.
A fragrance emanates from her wet skin
That wafts with the wind,
Expressing to her mate
A humble feeling of gratitude.
