William Carlos Williams

"Sicilian Emigrant's Song"

In New York Harbour
O - eh - lee! La - la!
Donna! Donna!
Blue is the sky of Palermo;
Blue is the little bay;
And dost thou remember the orange and fig,
The lively sun and the sea breeze at evening?
Hey - la!
Donna! Donna! Maria!

O - eh - li! La - la!
Donna! Donna!
Grey is the sky of this land.
Grey and green is the water.
I see no trees, dost thou? The wind
Is too cold for the big woman there with the candle.
Hey - la!
Donna! Donna! Maria!

O - eh - li! La - la!
Donna! Donna!
I sang thee by the blue waters;
I sing thee here in the grey dawning.
Kiss, for I put down my guitar;
I'll see thee more songs after the landing.
O Jesu, I love thee!
Donna! Donna! Maria!
