I note with observation quite astute
-not that I haven’t noticed it before-
an arch as graceful as a bamboo shoot
(a nice, Japan-related metaphor.)
It is composed of hairs of inky hue
(quite logical for one of Asian race)
A ring of silver neatly pierces through
like sev’ral others elsewhere in the face.
It is an eyebrow-ordinary thing,
perhaps more neatly shaped than is the norm;
in fact, but for the decorating ring,
not much attention would I give its form.
But it is his and therefore it is clear
it is an object which I must revere.
