O Lovely Queen of Hills, So well deserved your name So rich you look in green attire, Snow clad when winter came And when the rains they bathe you Your freshness is a sight Those tiny drops on leafy edge Admirers drink delight!
Your evergreens they sway To the whistles of the wind And the undergrowth is thick While the berries hide within The oak it greets the pine The dog flowers laugh a lot The ladybird attempts escape But in tiny hands is caught
When the world looks up to stars And its lovers night to meet You re-define the rules - And the stars are at your feet All enthralled onlookers They marvel at this sight The scattered light is all beneath Of wonders it’s the height
The spring gives you those flowers You blush in pink and white When the windy hailstorm swings You embrace them light The acorns fall so carelessly The bluebird takes a flight There is just no shying back Romance is sparked alight
On the valley they descend The clouds not left behind And cover it as a mushy quilt We're living on ‘Cloud Nine’ The heart leaps up for a sea so soft And the eyes with pleasure gleam Where’s the difference in the two The Earth does Heaven seem
When misty fog does come It wraps you all around Nothing meets the eye The mystery is abound Feel the mist across your face It’ll settle on your hair And softly whisper in your ear My Lady! You’re so fair
Adorned by the winter line The king is now in town His trusted chauffer be the snow And the lazy Sun his clown At noon you nap- in heaven’s lap No pleasure beats this one On drowsy, drunken beauty sleep Delighted smiles the Sun
The cold is on the prowl Snow flakes are falling down Excitedly they all look up The trees, the cliffs, the roofs, the town And soon they’ll all- that cover get That special white on them will set O! Queen rejoice and wear your crown Your subjects now their fate have met!
