African Woman

Africa! Beauty of the world
natural and black, lovely and blessed
models of God's creation,
silhoutted with beauty; oh Africa gold
blessed with the cur and cons of her body
and color of her skin
bethrothed to love, kind creature they are
with their soft heart they conquer all men
with their musical voice they give sound to the day/morning
and night/evening,
strong willed they are, they are pride of our nation, leaders of years

to come, for they know the value of all.they are mothers, daughters
and wives of africa

    Very well said Shitta.... No doubt about the beauty of the women of Aftica and the beauty of all women the most important creatures on earth.... I love your spirit and the pride you have. Always keep that pride for it is the truth and nobody can ever change the truth although many try. The beauty of women will always be the most radiant. I think you tell it very well. Thank you for sharing your art with us. Jim Troy (Report) Reply

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
