Blinded must I have been, for Portia, while beauty-laden might she be, doth have a mistress, a fair creature so named Narissa. A wondrous and worthwhile trip hast this indeed become! Ahh…the beautiful maiden, a heavenly pearl, shineth like the sun doth she…clothed in elegance…that matron of Portia… Sea nymph, black-haired beauty, why hath mine eyes not yet become entranced in thy entangling heart? Rejoice today, rejoice to-morrow! Possess I joy, not one drop of sorrow!
