F lowering clusters amidst a green canopied tree,
R adiant sight , the exotic flowers golden - white.
A sweet scented fragrance, from petals dew drops drip,
N estled in emerald trees at their branch tips.
G od's showers in my flower garden,
I nnate beauty upon earthly paradise.
P icked by pretty maidens to adorn their hair,
A llures my heart to see the flowery affair.
N ature's blossoms in golden spring,
I mpression of jewels unfolding.
*another name for Frangipani is Plumeria,
Hula dancers of Hawaii wear them in their hair.
