AS GREEN AS AN EMERALD, ALONE IN THE TRANQUILITY.

THE OCEAN SURROUNDING IT, A SPECK, UPON THE SEA.

WAVES GENTLY LAPPING ON FINE, WHITE SANDY BEACH;

A SHELTERED, BEAUTIFUL COVE; FROM STORMS, OUT OF REACH.

 

RICH WITH COCONUT FRUIT, MAJESTIC PALMS SWAYING.

LARGE BUNCHES OF BANANAS, AGAINST GREEN, YELLOW STRAYING.

A QUIET ROAR OF SOUND, MUFFLED INSIDE THE FOILAGE;

CASCADING FROM A MOUNT, A WATERFALL, OFF A LEDGE.

 

MUSICAL CHORUS IN COMPETITION, TWITTERING OF MANY BIRDS;

A FLASH OF BRILLIANT COLORS, ALL SINGING, WITHOUT WORDS.

UNDEFILED BY HUMAN HANDS, THE ISLAND IN NATURAL STATE.

UNTRODDEN BY MANS' FOOT, PURE, AS GOD DID CREATE.

 

1995            BY WAYNE J. WAGAR
