      Island Poem   - by J. Earnhart
If ever you've lived on an island
   If ever you've lived by the sea;
You'll never return to the mainland
   Once your spirit has been set free.

If ever you've smelled the ocean
   Or tasted the salt in the air;
You'll know you've discovered a haven
   That is uncommon, precious and rare.

If ever you've seen the whales play
   Or watched the eagles in flight;
You'll remember, again, why you live here
   And why it feels so right.

If ever you've seen the sunset
   As the ferry passed the shore;
You've seen the beauty of the island
   That will be with you forever more.

If ever you've heard the seagulls
   The waves, a foghorn, the winds;
Then you've heard the song of the island
   And the peaceful message it sends.

Indeed, if you live on an island
   If you're lucky to live by the sea;
You'll never return to the mainland
   As your spirit has been set free.
