To Saint Kitts and Nevis
Trade Winds1 Sing:
To Saint Kitts and Nevis

The trade winds blow
across Saint Kitts and Nevis
intoning the lyrics
to its national anthem--
"O Land of Beauty"2--
whispering the Royal anthem--
"God Save the Queen"3--
or chanting the countries Motto:
"Country Above Self"4.

Listen to the trade winds echo
the Brown Pelican56 call,
or the songs of 1767
bird species.

The trade winds invite you to experience
St. Kitts' tropical savanna climate8,
or Nevis' tropical monsoon climate9.
