Best Explorer (from 7, Nov. 2017)

On the tip of your nose my finger-tap;

I scan your face like a world map.

I tilt your head from left to right

And see my future glowing bright.

Your chin is firm—hard granite there;

Your lips, rose petals, sweet and rare;

Your forehead smooth—marble fine;

Your eyes, true living jewels—they’re mine!

I stake my claim, I do not miss!

No lips e’er felt a deeper kiss!

Your eyes, a-twinkle, winking


My world map brings happiness!

I am explorer! Drake was nought;

Columbus bound no thing he sought;

Magellan sailed the world around,

But I’m the best, for you I’ve found!
