December



Skating


Over the ice she flies
Perfect and poised and fairó
Stars in my true love's eyes
Teach me to do and to dare.

Now will I fly as she flies ...
Woe for the stars that misled !
Stars that I saw in her eyes
Now do I see in my head.

Notes on the text


Stars that I saw in her eyes, now do I see in my head Pride and daring come before a fall.
