Aro you weary of a region
Where tho bllndlnsr blizzards blow?
Aro you seeking for a refugo

Am you tired of deadly cyclones.
Tired of lightning's lurid glare, ,
Hurricanes and wild tornadoes, j
Dealing death and dlro dei'palr? '
Do you seek ft homo where songbirds.
Sing swoot carols all tho day,
Whojo the climbing roses blossom j

Would you dwell iwhero balmy breezes
GoutlY blow, and skies aro clear.
Where thu springtime verdure' fades
All throughout the livelong year?.
