Florida Florida Florida - Poem by Sherif Monem

Florida is a Great State
If you fall in love with Florida
You can't be blamed
Florida offers a lot
It is large and huge indeed
You can watch its marvels and wonder
It is called the sunshine state
Its shores extends from the Atlantic Ocean
to gulf of Mexico and Key West
It was first discovered by the Spaniards
Juan Ponce de León in the sixteenth century
Florida has great cities
From Tallahassee and Jacksonville in the North
to the fancy city of Miami in the South
Clearwater and Saint Petersburg
Orlando and Disney world in the middle
Florida has great tourist attractions
Bush Garden, Sea World and Cape Canaveral
Space exploration missions tell another story
Florida is rich in Orchards
Orange, tangerine and citrus
Sea water sports are splendor
Deep see fishing
When the horizon blue skies touches the ocean
Florida is ever-growing state
A retirement haven for seniors and many
In winter a refuge for the snow birds flock
Escaping the severe north harsh winters
Florida has long story to tell
from the time of the native Indian
to the Spanish conquerors to the English
to the St. Augustine refuge
and to the Seminole trail of tears
and the natives agony
Now, it is glory as a new state
Then a growing nation
Welcome to Florida for pleasure and joy
