Thisonion-topped palace, This gold-trimmed sanctuary,
This place of worship, Thisforsaken, window-filled dome,
This hard, oak-wood floor, This rainbow oforiental fabrics,
This crowd of peasants with possessions galore
Near fitfor an emperor happy on his throne,
This country of jewels, This yellow,shining enemy

Which housesan array of beautiful people,
Or protects its variety of unusualanimals,
After the rain subsides from the green grass blossoms,
Thispleasing field of flowers, This shepherd's land,
