Alanna Lita

A man says to his daughter one day:

Dear Alanna Lita,

listen to me,

you don’t need a life of misery,

You deserve

every wonderful thing

that life can bring”

By:J.N.R Dutton

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” .
