As I Saw The Orient


All the leaves are green, in the month of May.
Passing through the crowds, I start to see the day.

I don't see any sorrow in the sunny skies, Orient tomorrow,
In all it's people's eyes.

Gazing at a temple, I stopped along the way, well I see all the people
Kneeling, and I begin to pray.

I don't see any sorrow, in all the sunny skies,
Orient is peaceful, I hear the people's cries,
Orient tomorrow, it's all in its children's eyes.

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
