SUSAN ROCES: QUEEN OF PHILIPPINE MOVIES



FAIRY QUEEN SUSAN


Lovely AS AN ANGEL…

Haunting as a dream.

Your face is like the dawning day,

You are fairer than words can say;

Your smile is like the smile of morn,

So tender though you thrive in thorn.

Your pretty petals pink in hue,

Are nightly bathed with falling due;

Your slender stem swings as a breeze

SENDS forth a hasty, stolen kiss.

Sweet mountains primrose you are called,

A flower-princess clad in gold;

Oh, had I been the king of men,

I’d make you, dear, my lovely queen.

To my eyes, you are a ruby;

To my fancy you’re a jade—

With a crown of love and glory

Shining bright upon your head.

In you I see a lost horizon

In the offing of my dreams;

Yes, I find that fading vision

Of a pearl among old gems.

I behold you, scented maiden

In a web of plastic ray;

See your smile that’s partly hidden

Wonder whether ‘tis for me.
