Africa


Africa the song of the time
You blessed
In every turn
Every time
Your bless to huddle
All the time
As your drums
Daintily play
For the soul
AS granted holder
YOU Africa
For the hope
Africa your beauty
On the face
Africa
You
The bounty of the earth

(I belong to her
She belong to heart)

And the love is all what repaint
If there is heaven
On the earth
Oh then Mather
Africa is you
No matter west
No matter east
No matter north
Or the south
In wholeness
Yours mine
From top to toe
Africa you heartily
Sacred hub
For the peace
And that ought to be
to please
Africa in my heart
Africa is my home
Africa
We must unite
Let to put in sum
What we have
And then the sun
Let to shine
In all Africa
Let we take
The lead
As we deserve
Africa

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
