(blessed am i that i)
BLESSED AM I that I am born to this land and that I had the luck
to love her.
What care I if queenly treasure is not in her store but precious
enough is for me the living wealth of her love.
The best gift of fragrance to my heart is from her own flowers
and I know not where else shines the moon that can flood my
being with such loveliness.
The first light revealed to my eyes was from her own sky and let
the same light kiss them before they are closed for ever.
