I was minding my own business,
When, however, her gesture, all of a sudden, attracted my attention
Although, I have been told looks are subjective and often do mislead
But she seemed so enticing; I thought should I, once again, gamble on love?
Engulfed as I was with such a great excitement I did listen to the heart one more time.
“Lo and behold!” the heart said once again, as it did before my first heartbreak. “The season is here, the season to love and be loved.”

Oh foolish heart, what in a tomboy did you a beauty see?
Time and again you love her, but foolish you are you prove.
Foolish heart, open your eyes and see: your love doesn’t her move.
Ignore not the other beauties that lament and die out of jealousy.
Yet with no other beauties you wish to be
Oh, in a tomboy a beauty you did see!
Then foolish heart, a thousand death must you die
For she is unkind, business-minded, and a fame-hungry being
She seeks any men who might give her a diamond ring
Die oh foolish heart die, and kiss her and the world a final goodbye.
