You may chant the praise of the Arctic sea Where twilight lingers long, You may create a tale of a fairyland And weave it into song.

You may pine for a rock-bound coast afar, Or else for a sandy shore Where the tide comes in and the tide gos out, Or the breakers loudly roar. -You may yearn for your yellow jassamine And your orange blossoms fair, Or lilac blooms perfuming The circumambient air. You may boast of your north, your east, your west, Your south or your central plains, But the dearest spot in the world for me Is someplace where it sometimes rains.
