Africa


Live in the memories of the past years;
Leave the shackles of the fading years,
Dream of the frequency of good news;
Sing of the frequency of desirable news.

Deal with your oppressors with a great heart,
Live as a heart worthy of hearts;
Reach for the years of greater glories,
Dream of the stories behind your glories.

Remain a stream of newness,
Retain the fountain of newness;
Live in the insights of your ancestors,
Live in the visions of nubian ancestors.

Keep your root far deep in the soil,
Give your roots more depth in the soil;
Remain purified in the fires of affliction,
Prevail against the fires of affliction.

The heart of a servant, the strength of a king;
The art of the wise, the ways of a king;
Leave the stings of the distant sunsets,
Cling to the dreams of the coming sunsets.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
