Jamaican Poetry: Royal Jamaica by Denise N. Fyffe

Royal empress so divine
Arm outstretched like the grape vine
Beauty radiant in the Caribbean sun
Jamaica is royal, an empress
That bids you to come;
In scores and thousands
Many traverse the great seas
To see the hidden beauty which she keeps;
They play on her shores
And traverse her valleys
They climb her rocks and take from her, plenty;
Jamaica is royal,
An empress of beauty
Jamaica is royal,
Giving of her bounty
Ageing and maintaining her beauty
Being even more gracious, as she turns 50;

Royal empress so divine and wealthy
Arms outstretched like the grape vine, filled with plenty
Beauty radiant in the Caribbean sun
Jamaica is royal, an empress
That bids you to come and enjoy the sun;
In scores and thousands
Many traverse the great seas
To see the hidden beauty which she silently keeps.
