Africa


Africa my Africa
Africa my mother land
land of milk and honey
land of natural beauty
Africa land where i live

Africa my Africa
A land of great rulers
Africa my Africa
land of nature
A land were nature lives

Africa my Africa
A land blessed by God himself
On the day of creation
God threw diamond like stone
gold like rain
He dropped crude oil like rain

Africa my Africa
land of milk and honey

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
