Kebra Nagast – Ark Of The Covenant - Poem by Margaret Alice

A new Mystery for Me:

The Ethiopian Queen known as Queen Makeda
came to visit King Solomon of Israel
we read in Chapter 25 of the ancient
Ethiopian Epic Kebra Nagast

King Solomon sent her home
with the gift of half his kingdom
carried through the night
as swift as an eagle in his flight

On Solomon’s secret Flying Machine
afterwards she gave birth to his son
known as King Menelik
who returned to King Solomon

In his Flying Aircraft
to carry off the Ark of the
Covenant to its final
resting place

The town of Axun that had been
founded by Noah’s grandson
so history came
full circle

And I can breathe again:
The Mystery is still
