Beautiful sixteen

They are beautiful, girls at the age of sixteen,
or a little bit older, say eighteen, nineteen,
made, created, to nourish and help meet the man.
They are perfectly fit to take part in God’s plan.

They are beautiful, are they, anew and on guard
by their faith in The Son, still untutored, not scarred.
They deliver what needs to be said loud and spoken.
And by Christ they, when seen, will recover, not broken.

They are beautiful, girls at the age of sixteen
by their maternal look, by their breasts firm and keen, –
are perhaps those most meant to be married and saved.
They are sensual, sweet. And we make them depraved.
