Florida Florida Florida - Poem by sherif monem

Florida is a Great State

You fall in love with Florida

You can't be blamed

Florida offers a lot

It is huge indeed

You can watch its marvels and wonder

It is called the sunshine state

Its shores extends to the Atlantic Ocean

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 fancy city of Miami in the South

Clearwater and Saint Petersburg

to Orlando and Disney world

Florida has great tourist attractions

Bush Garden, Sea World and Cape Canaveral

Space exploration missions tell stories

Florida is rich in Orchards

Orange, tangerine and citrus

Sea sports are splendor

deep see fishing and blue skies touching the ocean

Florida is ever growing state

Retirement haven for many

Refuge for the snow birds flock

Escaping the severe northeast 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 agony

to our recent times, statehood in a young nation

Welcome to Florida for pleasure and joy

Welcome to Florida for pleasure and joy
