I Love My Country Sri Lanka.......... - Poem by Ravi Sathasivam

On top of the mountain, God sits on Adam's peak
Throwing his heavenly blessings to our nation
Blessed our country known to the
world as the Garden of Eden.
When our mountains are covered with beautiful flora
When the fauna walk freely in our jungles
When our valleys are flowing with water from heaven
When our ocean is picturesque blue
When the nature hugs our nation
Blessed our country known to the
world as the paradise on earth
When our people show their love and faith
When our people are gentle and kind
Blessed our country known to the
world for her hospitalities.
Surrounded by all of these blessings
God wants us to love one another
and live happily together surrounded by faith and trust.
Let us obey his words and build our country
as a beautiful Sri Lanka

    Is there any perfect reason why you took merely the Adam's Peak? what is the significant? whatever, the poem is wonderful! (Report) Reply

    It is located on the top of a mountain in Sri Lanka called Adam's Peak (also known as Sri Pada – the Holy Footprint) . For Hindus, the name of the mountain is Sivan Adi Padham, because it was the world-creative dance of the god Shiva that left the giant footprint.
