A poem written By Rodney Ndi
When you have acquired a taste for the dust,
and the scent of our first rain drop;
You’re hooked for life in Africa
and you may not seem right again
Until you can watch the dancing 🌒 moon
and hear the jackals bark
And know they are around you
Hovering in the dark.
When you long to see the 🐘 elephants,
or hear the coucal’s song,
Then you’ve been away for too long.
It’s time to cut those traces loose
and let your 💓 heart go free
Beyond that far horizon
Where your spirit yearns to be.
Africa is waiting_ Come!!!!!
Since you have touched the open sky
And learned to love rustling grasses,
The wild fish and the eagle’s cry.
For the lion’s rasping roar
To camp at least beneath the stars
And to be at peace once more…
