Snowbirds - Poem by Helen Miles
palm trees sway beneath skies of blue
Gulf winds blow the sail boats too.
The many pleasures just in reach
like restaurants, shopping and the beach.
Winter sun still warms the sand
where people flock to get a tan.
The water temp is now too cold,
who venture in are mighty bold.
The snowbirds now they dive right in
and tell us that our blood's too thin.
The natives here will disagree.
It's winter now don't' they believe.
So many things for them to see
like Egrets, Pelicans and Manatee,
Dolphins playing in the Gulf,
Beautiful parks, and nature walks.
Welcome back to snowbird friends.
Your time comes swiftly to an end.
Come shell and fish, the pier is grand.
Enjoy our paradise vacation land.
