AT SIESTA TIME
Heat of the noonday!
Hush of the June day!
Fragrant with perfume of Roses;
Calm and contented,
And sandal wood scented,
All nature a moment reposes.
Stillness of night in the heart of the day,
Save for the sound of the fountains at play, Ah!
At Siesta time on the housetop,
In the langourous haze of the day
That is the time when I ponder,
When I wonder the hours away;
It is life in essence of music,
Set to a sensuous rhyme
Wonderful skies of cloudless blue
Wonderful eyes I gaze into
And wonderful dreams I dream with you
At Siesta time.
