Sweet is the shade of the coconut glade




Sweet is the shade of the coconut glade, and the
scent of the mango grove, 
And sweet are the sands at the full o’ the moon with
the sound of the voices we love; 
But sweeter, O brothers, the kiss of the spray and
the dance of the wild foam’s glee; 
Row, brothers, row to the edge of the verge, where
the low sky mates with the sea.

Sarojini Naidu
