Girl with a Bagi

written by: Jordan Dean



I am mesmerized with your fragrance
You shine as brightly as the sun
Your shadows are as pretty as the moon

Your figure sparkles like the eastern star
You walk elegantly like a pacific princess
Her hair is curly like the ocean waves

Around your neck,
Is a pearl necklace
Of our native Milne Bay
Where the sun rises

You’re the daughter of the ocean
My Goddess Aphrodite
And the choice of my parents
I worship you with my eyes


Bagi: traditional shell necklace
