Poinciana, your branches speak to me of love,
Pale moon is casting shadows from above.
Poinciana, somehow I feel the jungle heat,
Within me there grows a rhythmic savage beat.
Love is ev'rywhere, its magic perfume fills the air,
To and fro you sway, my heart's in time, I've learned to care.
Poinciana, from now until the dawning day,
I'll learn to love forever come what may.
