A Poem to my Tahitian Daughters

You Are Free
J.Van Genderen

You are free to wake to the morning sun
and soak in its golden warmth;
to swim among the multicolored corals on the reef,
lying just beneath the sparkling sea;
to dance with full-bodied abandon
to the music of the conch shell.
You are free from a stranger's 
licentious vision of paradise.
