Lyrics:
Poinciana, your branches speak to me of love
Pale moon is casting shadows from above
Poinciana, somehow I feel the jungle heat
Within me, there grows a rhythmic, savage beat

        Love is everywhere, its magic perfume fills the air
        To and fro you sway, my heart's in time, I've learned to care!

Poinciana, from now until the dawning day
I've learned to love forever, come what may



        Love is everywhere, its magic perfume fills the air
        To and fro you sway, my heart's in time, I've learned to care!

Poinciana, from now until the dawning day
I'll learn to love forever, come what may
Poinciana!

NOTE: per Webster' Dictionary. "Poinciana"  is a prickly tropical shrub with showy orange-red flowers

crimson filaments.  Trees of this same genus are found in East Africa, India, and the Mascarene
Islands. Named after
M. De Poinci, a governor of the French West Indies.
