The Tropical Whisper
By Shaun Sykes
Composed on September 4-5, 2000


Hear the words of wisdom
As they beckon you to come,
Whispers echo softly
Upon the wind so calm.

Weather clears before you
Sunshine rules the day,
Waves of captivation
Pull you closer to your goals.

Step upon my island
View the wondrous sights,
Breathe the air of nature
Engulfing you the more.

Seeking and oasis?
An island’ tropical paradise,
Rejecting it so long to draw you here
And soon take flight.

Enjoy the gentle breezes
Swim lakes and waterfalls,
Your home is right before you
So embrace your surroundings
Completely come alive.
