My favorite flores* is the plumeria
With its sweet smell of serenity
That’ll freshen your day.
Then there’s the pleasant smell of jasmine
That vibrantly lifts your spirit.
The ginger, too, can be smelled
With its strong and flavorful scent.
Guam’s natural beauty also includes
The spectacular bloom of the hibiscus
With its wondrous and colorful sight.
And one can’t forget Guam’s territorial flower –
The puti tai nobio* –
Which gives our island that heavenly touch
Of exquisite hues.
