“A Riddle”. A Poem. Written by poet unknown. Guest at Gulfstream Hotel. Lake Worth, Florida. 1963.


           “ A lake ~ and swinging palm trees,

                                                                     The Ocean ~ deep and green ~ ”

Remember 2015 Coastal Observer series about the history of the Gulfstream Hotel? The first issue was titled, “Dog Days and Glory Days”. From that series, a poem. . .

. . . can you guess My riddle?*

Some folks, they like a riddle,
Now here is one for you.
It’s square, not deep, but open
Soft breezes blowing through.

Beyond the sky is lovely,
While clouds go sailing o’er.
I hear the call of song birds,
A distant train’s low roar.

A lake ~ and swinging palm trees,
The Ocean ~ deep and green ~
Now can you guess My riddle?
It’s my window ~ at Gulf Stream


*Poem about the Gulfstream Hotel from December, 1963 titled, “A Riddle”, written anonymously by a visitor to the hotel 54 years ago. Poem reprinted in the Coastal/Greenacres Observer (publisher: Lake Worth Herald) on October 29th, 2015.
