This is an Unexpected Pleasure...

I'd  eat beef liver for a year,
I'd climb up to the Taktshang Tzong*
I'd  swim across the Ganges
I'd do whatever's right--or wrong--
Forget my father and my son
Forget the men I've loved the most,
I'd never see another film
I'd be a Hungry Ghost--

Why, I would give my Sunday hat
For Such Another Smile as That!

*So O.K, it's only a monestary.
