A man says to his daughter one day:
“Dear Alanna Lita,
listen to me,
you don’t need a life of misery,
every wonderful thing
that life can bring”
In this poem, Alanna Lita is not a name, so much as terms of endearment. Alanna literally translates “beautiful”, whereas Lita means “joy” or “joyful.”
In the poem, the dad is referring to his daughter as “Beautiful Joy” .
