MY HEART IS NORTH WITH YOU.
By Borneo's spicy headlands,
By reef and surf and palm, Our screw is eastward steaming
On through the tropic calm ; The South's deep hush is round me ;
The South's bright stars, I view ; My lonely watch, I'm pacing,
But my heart is North with you.
In gorgeous glory sinking,
The sun, the west, died down ; And how my fond heart tracked him
To one dear Kentish town ; To one far home, so dear, wife,
To one, so fond and true ; Oh ! Kate, the South is round me,
But my heart is North with you !
