I have a garden of my own,
Shining with flow’rs of ev’ry hue;
I loved it dearly while alone,
But I shall love it more with you;
And there the golden bees shall come,
In summertime at break of morn,
And wake us with their busy hum
Around the Siha’s fragrant thorn.
I have a fawn from Aden’s land,
On leafy buds and berries nurst,
And you shall feed him from your hand,
Though he may start with fear at first.
And I will lead you where he lies
For shelter in the noontide heat;
And you may touch his sleeping eyes,
And feel his little silv’ry feet.
