Maeve Prepares for Betane

Before anyone praises me,

I must praise myself.

My flaming Hair.

My noble nose.

My brilliant eyes.

Before anyone desires me,

I must feel my own desire.

My full soft lips.

My swan neck.

My full soft breasts.

Before anyone knows me,

I must know myself.

My polished skin.

My round belly.

My welcoming thighs.

Before anyone loves me,

I must fully love myself.

My briar patch.

My secret rose.

My fierce heart.

Before the fires blaze,

I set myself alight
