From Motherland - Poem by Paul Mwenelupembe

From motherland, lands a spring of rivers
That gushes out radio waves ontop
And descends down stream with cool water
That feeds our motherland
Look at her meanders, she sneaks into the green land
And sniffes Canaan of today
The head of all lands in her and stands firm in deep sea as a rock
She is an eagle but alioness
That roars on the feet of Mount Zion
And drives our hospitality, our land
As she dives out of the best African pot
From motherland she lies in her greenage


Poet's Notes about The Poem

what inspired me to write this poem is the love that I have on my country Malawi. It has all the resources but her people are poor. The country is rich indeed: minireals, lake fuel all that you can mention. I therefore give praise to her for it brings hope of being rich at alater date.04/11/2012
