Magic of the Islands



Sun shining down.
Silver white clouds
Floating by,
On the cool tropical breeze.

Orange and white starfish
Lays motionless in the sand.
The sounds of summer,
Drifting in from all around.

Musical notes,
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.
