In Florida at dusk
Tall men play banjos.
Their tunes wail and moan and soothe
Far into the night.

On the seashore
The wind brings an aroma from the tropics.
Here is the fragrance of magnolia
From trees that have grown immemorially.

Lights are in the Casino tonight,
Bathers are on the shore.
Calm, cool content follows the regular susurrus
Of palm leaf fans
And soft, soothing voices.

I hear the persuasive tones
Of banjo and violin and voice
Mingling with the sepia silhouette
Of three tall men against the moon.
