"In Miami, ordinary days are always victorious
And filled with the same warmness and gentleness;
The summer is endless for us -
Fulfilled with triumph and kindness…
In the hot summer time the King of Sun
Rules until the hurricanes season –
Taking time off for disputes
And following the fable from Aesop –
The Sun argues.
The mighty Wind from the far seas
Blows on trees
The branches and leaves.
Miamians hurry indoors
And looking for water, ice, and shelters;
Then, barricading the homes,
And waiting and waiting for the contest victors.
People try their best as the Wind might.
Every year we learn more –
Easier influence masses
With kindness and gentleness
Then with force and war!"
