If it was not for Cupid’s unforeseen passion

Beauty should have to remain often hidden

A red rose would be worth nothing unless in

The clasped hands of beloved and the loving

Love dances as an emotion the most apparent

But there are lots more novels written about it

Than any other mysterious or rigorous subject

By charmers who convey signs of some intellect

Maybe it is not an utterly satisfying feeling yet

Rather the kind whence heart and soul benefit

 


Evgenia Obraztsova as Cupid, Mariinsky Ballet.
