I've seen snow on Fujiyama

Ships of cloud in eternal sky,

Breathless canyons and sunlit vistas,

Verdant forests and mountains high,

The pirouette of storms unwinding,

The pale Moon brood among stars majestic,

The arching sky with morning limned.

Yet never among this living magic

That imbues with light a beauteous world

Have I seen a sight that competes e'en closely

With the wonder of the smile

Of a pretty girl.
