My Island Home

Salty ocean breeze

Graceful palm tree leaves

Dance in warm, soft sand

Fresh coconut drink in hand

Hammock under the shade

Listen to the cuatro played

Bongos pound deep and proudly

People cheer, “Weepa!” loudly

Let the rhythm take control

Let it rejuvenate the soul

Later, it’s mofongo for dinner

Coquito makes you feel like a winner

Pan sobao with ham and cheese

Guava and crackers too please

Watch the sunset over El Yunque

At night coquis come out to play

My little enchanted island

I will visit soon again.
