Queen of Babylon

Queen of Babylon,
What saw you in Babylon?
Many lights burning
Under the stars,
Many bees humming
In a high garden,
And a great bearded king
Who went to the wars.

Queen of Babylon,
What heard you in Babylon?
Many shouts rising
Of warriors returned,
Many flutes playing
And the sound of waters
Falling as they fell
In the land for which I yearned.
