Paradise Lost

A lonely island stands so mysteriously in the middle of the ocean,
A rocky mountain surrounds it, concealing  its enchanting beauty,
The focal point of it is a dreamland where one’s ken is beyond,
A lonely  island stands so mysteriously.

The animals dance around on all kinds of fruit trees day and night so gaily,
Birds, insects  and nocturnal dwellers sing, chiming  every crustacean
To herald that a paradise lost is found , thanks God  be the glory!

Let’s go and explore its mesmerizing beauty and mystery, we all valiantly can,
At the entrance, the cold breeze and flowers in full bloom welcome us heartily,
Crystal- clear water on falls, springs and streams splashes cooler than a fountain,
A lonely island stands so mysteriously.
