No. 21 - Duet - Josephine and Marquis - "The Mirror of Love."

MIDI File

Marquis: No jewels rich and rare
A woman needs to wear
To make herself more fair to those that love her;
No gems to lie at rest,
And sparkle on her breast
Nor glitt'ring coronet to gleam above her.
What need, when modestly bedecked,
In mirrors than to gaze
For Love's own mirror will reflect
The beauty of her ways.
Josephine: And so today, to please you, Sir,
I'll gown myself as you prefer.
Both: When a wife who's dutiful,
Loving, loyal and wise,
Looks supremely beautiful
In her husband's eyes,
That's her truest mirror and a wife must surely pray
That she may be reflected there
For ever and for aye!
   
Marquis: Beneath your eye-lids peer
Twin sapphires, wond'rous deep
That make your glances prized by all who win them;
Your lips seem fairer far
Than any rubies are,
And precious are the pearls that dwell within them.
The opal with its changing lights
What connoisseur would seek
While he can watch the pinks and white
That mingle in your cheek.
Josephine: So please you, Sir, I am content
My charms have made you eloquent.
Both: When a wife who's dutiful,
Loving, loyal and wise,
Looks supremely beautiful
In her husband's eyes,
That's her truest mirror and a wife must surely pray
That she may be reflected there
For ever and for aye!
