La Isla of Enchantment This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By Oelania P, Brooklyn, NY

Puerto Rico de mi alma!
I reside in Rio Grande by way ofCarolina
I dream of a bright orange sun setting into the marina.
Yoursounds fill me with serenity; mi llenas de calma.
Your sun-kissed beaches andmountains so wild,
Secrets I leave to the dark sky's discretion.
In mymind lies this lingering question,
What thrills me so about this spellbindingisle?

The kiosks that sell all my favorite foods,
The extended walksthrough mi viejo San Juan.
The nighttime lullaby of the coqui and its brood,
Winter breezes as soft as chiffon.
I reminisce of immense fiestas on theFourth of July
My heart remains true to you, Puerto Rico,
until theday I die.
