Kilimanjaro


Independence of greatest souls
Freely wander at the horizon ranges
Amongst the expanse of spaces
In the gust of northern winds

The peaks, towering high
Till can touch the tip of the light
Like the island in the sea of clouds
Golden glow, carve entire skies

Wilderness white, as far as eyes can see
Stretch of the essence, eternal eternities
Where the black not longer be allowed
And doubt won't find any route

Echo of the stride, reverberates
Pawed the earth so valorous
Surrounded of the old-kings tombs
This is the realm of the Gods

His command to the winds
His order to the time
With the fogs will become
A hope for the new one

He is a king..
Mighty personal from East Africa
In his young ages
His steps and acts
Will shook the universe

    I love the imagery in the first two verses-very descriptive and beautiful. Maybe the rest of the poem would benefit from further efforts to allow the poem to say in English what you said in your own mother language. The present translation makes it difficult to follow and to understand. (Report) Reply

    Commanding language, presenting a very view of conquering the odds both physical and mental strings of imposing walls, . You make the mountain a living being that shapes the destines of the people that crosses it, a fabulous depiction of natures all consuming child. A lovely read great closing. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem. Envokes emotions of awe and reverence for Nature's awesome beauty and God's supremacy. I guess Kilimanjaro is for Tanzania what Himalayas is for India. (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
