Nearly caught me, she did

At the River’s final bank

The Eternal City shining through the mist.

My journey near complete

Tired back, aching feet

Wonder! Then by her wiles nearly kissed.

She has toppled many souls

Casting just one sultry look

And bankruptcies and scandal fill her book.

How could I, Standfast,

Wobble at a dress or a scent,

Stumble at one vain, come-hithering look?

Madame Bubble, harlot

Strumpet of the world.

See the wreck that befell a simple lass.

And she tried me, she did

Not a single trinket hid

Only Heaven’s keeping care got me past.
