Lofty ceilings of well-displayed charm,
windows like a cloudless sky,
I beg your pardon       take a look

Beautifully polished stones,
Will you touch it and please tell us,
How sweet the flower looks?

Pause, please do not mention our debt,
let beauty remain as it is now
Your opinions are diamonds to us,

our poor children against the edge,
All this for you,   passerby,
Sign here and declare
how high pretense flies.
