With Soufriere quiet after a year
We took a chance to move back here.
Standing elegantly, I see you in my back yard,
With your sulphur smelling strong
And your ash getting hard
I don’t know when you will fall asleep
Or when hot lava from your belly will leap
For you are a beauty and a beast.
No tears in your memory !
For you have made our name
And given us fame.
And we think you will help our economy !
A museum is ready and waiting for you
I wish scientists could wave goodbye to you
But for now, I will sleep peacefully
Watching you !
