Bird of Paradise


You are my bird of paradise,

The girl of my tropical dreams,

Near turquoise seas and hibiscus flowers

And foliage that glints and gleams.


You are my bird of paradise,

A goddess fallen to earth,

By coral sands and waving palms,

Like the sun kissing the surf.


You are my bird of paradise,

A creature of shapely form,

With an enchanting smile and shining eyes,

And a heart most kind and warm.


You are my bird of paradise,

A species of exotic being,

Below volcanic cones and forest streams

Where believing is indeed seeing.


You are that bird of paradise,

Who I will love to my dying day,

Come monsoons and wild hurricanes…

Till my last breath is cast away.
