There are thirteen things up in heaven,
One of which are the eyes that kiss the bright sun,
The golden corn in her hair has ripened
Had blossomed to cotton angels have spun
Daisies and tulips hung on her bright face
Roses, red roses, shaped to a kiss
A pauper’s shoes adorned with frills and lace
Those songs of flora that I wouldn’t miss
Wooden harps and wooden flutes they displayed
In wooden case and in wooden drawers,
Her presence hugs the air it never stayed
Green vines, little branches, colored flowers
Reached to heaven with myself to bring, but
She made a ladder with these thirteen things
