SIBOLGA WATERFALL


CHILDREN AMAZED OF YOUR BEAUTY
FALL DOWN ENDLESSLY TO THE SEA
OVER THE SOLID ROCK UNDER THE TREE
AS THE ICON OF MY HOME COUNTRY

GO TO COLLEGE FAR AWAY
YOUR CURRENT ALWAYS IN MY EYE
DREAM TO SEE YOU ONE DAY
WITH MY SIBLING ALONG THE WAY

PEDAL MY BIKE TILL UP HILL
SHOT WITH YOU AS MY BACKGROUND
TAKE WHEREVER WE MOVED AROUND
TO MEMORIZED MY CHILDHOOD

GENERATIONS MAY CHANGED
BUT YOUR WATER KEPT FLOWING
WATERING OUR HOME LAND
OUR LOVE FOR YOU WILL NEVER END

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
