An ocean-planet, rounded by a glory,
The billowy glory of the great Pacific,
Withdrawn in spheres remote of rolling blue.
An island, central with inferior groupings,
Like Jupiter, in the cerulean distance,
Magnificent among his circling moons.
Crowned with the vast white dome of Mauna Loa,
Escarpments rich with the pandanus, ravines,
Cascades and rainbows, form thy globular shell.
And, as I gaze and write, glorious Hawaii!
I see no terror in thy soaring beauty,
Thy sky of lazuli and sapphire sea.
William Gibson (1826 - 1887)
