You m;iy talk of the skies of Italy. '
You may rave o'er Ceylon's clime,
You may tell of the tropic verdure
Of the land along the line, .
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 sigh for the sight of a southern isle
'Where coral and amber glow,
Or the mountain side of pine and Or
And its peak whitecapped with snow.
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.
