I Salute You Zaingair

Proud be you
You Zaingair
of thy unique name
of thy unique identity

Proud be you
You Zaingair
of thy waters
Sweet thy waters seem
but poisonous they are

Proud be you
you Zaingair
Of thy sheep
innocent they seem
but cunning they are

Proud be you
You Zaingair
Of thy variety of serpents
Meek they seem
But venomous they are

Proud be you
You Zaingair
Of thy singing birds
Depth in their songs seem
But shallow they are

Proud be you
You Zaingair
Of thy huge mountains
Consistent they seem
But vacillating they are

Proud be you
You Zaingair
Of thy monkeys
Social they seems
but aliens they are

I salute you
You Zaingair, i salute you
for the variety of beasts
You have begotten
And you do nurture

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

Good-night? ah! no; the hour is ill
Which severs those it should unite;
Let us remain together still,
Then it will be good night.

How can I call the lone night good,
