Mother Africa

Mother Africa!
Oh mother Africa!
Have you heard?
Have you not seen?
Will you ever feel?
Can you ever perceive?
Oh mother Africa,Ancient in age,Ageing in civilization.
The cradle of man,The origin of the sapiens,Wholesome in creation,Whole in incarnation.
Nature's endowment,Shall it ever depart?
The greenery, the waters,T
he vegetation,Beautiful to behold,
A land of contrast!Mother Africa,
A paradox in its own self!
