My Country

Poem by Pierre J. Jean-Louis

In the heart of the Caribbean sea,
lays a Land of natural beauty,
living witness of a strong human hope,
where hundreds of miles of beaches,
a wide variety of tropical species,
plants, birds, fishes. . .
the diversified and very tasty creole cuisine,
the spiced local rum,
the hot beat of the "compas" rhythm,
the legendary conviviality of its people
make it a special place in everyone's heart,
a place, where every season,
brings a lot of occasions to celebrate,
and still a "pearl" to cherish: Haiti!
