I look forward to warmer days ahead,
when I shall go to Puerto Rico and be fed,
with mofongo and ice-cold piragua and maybe Puerto Rican lechon head.
Where I shall bathe in the Caribbean waters for the first time,
where I might taste their proud Bacardi Rum with a wedge of lime.
Where I shall see what sea critters roam their sand,
where I shall hear if the Coqui Frog croaks like no other amphibian on land.
Where I shall see the grandeur of Old San Juan,
where I shall spy what shoes womens wear there for fun.
I hear your call, "La Isla del Encanto,"
I await our sun-drenched encounter, en el verano.
