Rhythm Of Africa! - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Dance, dance!
With the muse of Africa;
Tap, tap!
With the rhythm of Africa;
Moving your body and,
Moving your steps;
To the sounds and cultures of the various tribes in Africa.
Dance, dance!
To the rhythm of Africa;
Tap, tap!
With the movements of the muse of Africa;
To a continent of nature's muse,
To a continent of multi-languages,
To a continent full of colours!
Fron North, South, East and West;
Come to Africa and see things for yourselves.
Rhythm of Africa,
Rhythm of various customs and cultures,
Rhythm of the various countries in Africa,
Rhythm of the animals,
With the beauty of nature as seen around.
Dance, dance!
Dance with the steps and shke your body;
To the rhythm of Africa touching your heart and soul.
Tap, tap!
With the movements of the muse of Africa;
Rhythm of Africa!
With the muse of various races in Africa;
Expressing their cultures and customs to the muse of the rhythm of Africa.

    In all likelihood Dancing was born in Africa. Just imagine the night. Just imagine the firelight. Just imagine the drum. Just imagine the trance. That set the first shadow. To follow step in step. The first soul elated. The first human spirit. Elevated to dance. (Report) Reply

    I like how your writing implores the reader to experience Africa and your poem with all the senses. Dance, Tap, Touch, See, Read... You also repeat that the reader needs to experience the muse of Africa and then the muse of the rhythm of Africa. Well done. Thanks! (Report) Reply
