Islands In The Sun
~ Trinidad and Tobago
Often I hear the weather description of other countries of the world,
As being either unbearably hot or freezing cold.
Thankfully we don't have that complaint in Trinidad and Tobago,
And please don't mistake this statement for self inflated ego.
We've been placed at the ideal latitude and longitude coordinates,
Which holds major responsibility for our warm and inviting climate.
The North East Trade Winds keep us cool and refreshed,
A sentiment to which locals and foreigners alike can attest.
Over the years we've stood on many storms and hurricanes' course,
But we've somehow escaped with little or no devastating loss.
Our feelings are never dampened by intervals of rain,
Because we know the sun will soon be out in its glory again.
It's almost always accompanied by the most spectacular rainbow painted across the sky,
Leaving you in awe of the beauty right before your eyes.
As often as an airplane comes to our airport,
Visitors come seeking some sunbathing sport.
When they make their departure from our twin island,
They do so proudly, with an exotic Caribbean tan.
So while we're thankful for the blessings of sweet T&T,
Let's pray for our neighbors to all weather their storm safely.
