Green trees and flowering plants
Dancing in the gentle breeze
Hills and valleys, and the mountains
Smiling in the rising Sun
Pretty lake looks like a mirror
Reflecting the vibrant rays;
“Oh! how awesome is this land”
I said Gazing on and on
As I watched the other shore
Right across the shiny lake!
Why does not my land look pretty,
As this shore across the lake?
On this question I did ponder
For a long time with no answer
Until one day I crossed the lake,
Turned, and with surprise noticed
The wondrous beauty of my own land
Which I ever failed to see!!
