Her majesty of beauty in an ocean motif
Elongated like a scorpion with many a reef
Roofs capture rainwater for personal use
Stucco cottages with magnificent colors profuse
A people who call with a touch of their horns
Navigate winding roads amidst the onions and corn

Islands where commerce and tourism meet
Hamilton signifies the government’s seat
British Bobbies in Bermuda shorts
Divert traffic around circles for fun and sport
Horseshoe Bay with fine pink sand
Sequester lovers who walk in hand

Soccer and cricket are sporting events
A national pastime from work prevents
Motor scooters comb hidden shops
Hibiscus and daffodils hide birds of a flock
White water cascades over the rocks below
Heaven and time caught in their flow

Southampton Parish boasts the world’s smallest drawbridge
While St. George on the North End caters to wines vintage
The Dockyard on the South End speaks of Davy Jones
A prison once held the skull and bones
This island paradise we call Bermuda
Replete with sharks and barracuda

This was lovely and created such a strong ambience. Nice composition, too. It makes me wish to visit Bermuda. Franz

Another wonderful contribution especially about Bermuda. I can see it the way you wrote the poem.
