2. For sunglasses, sunscreen and hats to enjoy the tropical warmth bright light and fresh air; For electric blankets on wet colder nights; And always for the de-humidifying machine.
3. For earth quakes that shake more like a big smoothy drink than a cocktail with ice cubes in it; A volcano that does not blow; And my sturdy little house that is still standing with no cracks or holes to let the rain or insects in.
4. For the coffee harvest; The red cherries safely out of the field being pulped; Even the ugly ones, we'll get them out too and they will pay bills; The oranges that pay for their own picking and put food on workers tables; The bananas that feed all life, life with eight, six, four, and two legs; Day and night time life; Life that flies and life that doesn't.
