LADY OF THE LAGOON

By the shores of that lagoon,
Where the water-lily lies,
Where the tall valerians rise
Slender as the crescent moon,
Goes Ha NanAh, Ha Nan,
Sleep brings me no relief:
My heart is full of grief.
By the shores of that lagoon,
Where the drowsy lotus lies,
Where the tall valerians rise
Brighter than the orbd moon,
Shines Ha NanAh, Ha Nan,
I turn and turn all night,
And dawn brings no respite.
