In the South lies this land most unique,
full of history, beauty, mystique,
peoples and places most varied,
and animals living untarried.
Home of Audubon's beautiful treasure,
bayous, rivers and lakes without measure,
fresh, brackish or saltwater fish,
it has reciped many a dish.
Other riches lie hidden beneath,
all above and below we bequeath,
that created by God most Divine,
on Earth's gumbo delightfully dine.
Such blessing is much like a wife,
her humidity beckons forth life,
I feel her breath on my face,
Bon Louisiana's embrace.
