in an Imaginary Sea,
and yours is the ship of discovery.
Is there anyone already there?
Is there anyone with you on deck?
What of the Flora and Fauna?
How long will you wish to stay?
A year and a day,
or forever and a day?

"...Island of—Finding?...Wandering Island?...
It is the magic island that slips through the seas;
now and then the navigator see her nearby...

Their prows almost brush that blissful shore:
towering palms sway amid flowers never seen before,
fragrance drifts from the lush, heavenly forest,
the cardamon weeps, the rubber trees ooze...

She is announced, like a courtesan, by her perfume,
the Un-Found Island...But, if the pilot steers her way,
she quickly vanished like a fantastic apparition,
tinting hersel with the blue color of the faraway...

Those who see this place in the Caribbean, those who come to the Swan Islands, will be greeted by the soft tropical breeze gently caresses your face as you bury your toes in the warm, pink sand, and the rhythmic sound of the waves lapping softly against the shore lulls you into a deep sense of relaxation. Sound nice? This is just a glimpse of what you'll find in Swan Island Honduras.
