NUDE

A woman, nude, stands beside me
She a product of a generation of war and pestilence
Her golden hair streaming in the wind
Shines beneath the golden rays of the sun
She is only one
Her golden body gleams brightly, reflecting the light
Of the sun and the moon
Her end will not be soon
A beautiful face, a curving neck
Full, round breasts and lithesome legs
Have passed the tests that Mankind put upon her
She'll be forever free

A man, nude, stands beside me
He a product of a generation of hate and disease
His golden hair looked so like the gods
Shines beneath the gilded rays of the sun
He is only one
His golden body gleams brightly, reflecting the light
Of the stars and the moon
His end will not come soon
A handsome face, a muscled neck
A pow'rful chest and sinewed legs
Have passed the tests that Mankind put upon him
Forever free from sin

A girl, nude, stands beside us
She a product of a generation of peace and love
Her golden hair curling down her shoulders
Hides her breasts from the rays of the sun
She is only one

A boy, nude, stands beside us
He a product of a generation of beauty and friendship
His golden hair so like his sister's
Curling yet, so handsome, he anon
And he is only one
