Arise paramour, arise you are deep in the land of dreams
Behold the rolling plains’ splendor, and singing streams
Bask in savannah twilight, find joy in the warm gleams
A thousand turns in the bush, the less trodden path follow
The fragrance of wild roses breathe a gulp, a soft kiss blow
Drink life from sweet wild sounds, as gentle the music flow
Golden-streaked clouds glide, drown in awe as they drift along
Gently sashay with acacia as wind blows, casting shadows long
Let the breeze embrace, listen to the chaste wind’s song
Heavens sprinkled with starry constellation, what a sight
And the moon, a smiling friend to lonesome soul, in the night
Find delight and healing and peace, may your soul be light
