An African Day. [nature] - Poem by alan brown

The African Sun Glowed Red in the cloudless sky
as birds fluttered high overhead singing as they passed me bye.
Antelope Played as Spring Buck sprang
leaving muddy hoof prints in the dampened sand.
Lions roared as Hyenas laughed as they stalked their pray
in the tall plains grass.
Elephants roamed and ate their fill as Tigers watched from a nearby hill.

Monkeys looked out from the green leafed trees
as Condors glided in the Summer breeze.
Ants so tiny underfoot nibbled at grass leaf and root
as Bees settled down from the toils of the day
watching honey dripping from their hive in dismay.
Children ranand adults played
as the night set in on a African day.
