Last Line: Oh winged lagoon!
Subject(s): Lagoons

Oh winged lagoon, your waters spread
Beneath a sky where night has shed
Her star-decked cloak and now, alas!
Your wings are but a looking-glass
To mirror colors over-head,

When flaming dawn has visited
Your limpid waters and has sped
Across the sky a brilliant mass,
Oh winged lagoon,

Your waters in their winged bed
Shall wake from sleep and dance instead,
Oh butterfly amid the grass,
Your sunflecked beauty shall surpass,
For to the southern sun you're wed
Oh winged lagoon!
