Islands of Florida

 

Florida's west coast islands beckon me
Sand and sea meet seemingly endlessly

Conch shells in the shallows abound
I rake them in by the pound

Work is far from my mind
Not have to think of that awful grind

Walk the beach in swimming trunks
While winter blizzards Northwestern dunks

Ahh for winters in the sand
But for the summers--no man's land




Islands of Florida(c)2002 Quentin Clingerman
