All her loving childhood

Language: English

All her loving childhood 
Breezes from the palm and canna
Fann'd this queen of the green wildwood,
Lady of the green Savannah:
All day long with laughing eyes,
Dancing by a palmy bay,
In the wooded paradise,
The cedar-wooded paradise
Of still Xaraguay:
None were so happy as Anacaona,
The beauty of Espagnola,
The golden flower of Hayti!
