Analysis of Magic of the Islands
Michelle Hoffmann 1970 (Wisconsin)
Sun shining down.
Silver white clouds
On the cool tropical breeze.
Orange and white starfish
Lays motionless in the sand.
The sounds of summer,
Drifting in from all around.
Made by the guitar being strummed.
And dancing young maidens
Gave the scene light and cheer.
Drums beat out the rhythm,
And the waves sounded out the rhyme.
Til daybreak they remained
Feeling the magic of the island.
