Mount Kilimanjaro Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

Mount Kilimanjaro

Rating: 4.3

The stepping-stone of the gods
Standing high above the clouds
With the snow white veil
And a magnificently erect pose
Shrouded by the mystical spirits
Surrounded by magical spells
Applauded by master artists
You stand with pride
For you stand for Africa

The bride of the gods
Beautifully moulded
Awesomely dressed
In a mystical gown
As ancient as the gods
You stand with pride
For you stand for Africa

The mighty Kilimanjaro
The spirit of Africa
Towers above all
In might and honor
Strength and beauty

Mt Kilimanjaro is Africa's spy in the sky. Good poem about Mama Africa's beauty.

Beautiful poem. While friends of mine are at this moment in time climbing Kilimanjaro, I am sitting at home reading your poem. Thank you for taking me there.

A moving and touching poem to all those who have had the pleasure of standing on summit only for a few minutes of once life only to come down again. I would like to dedicate this poem to Gugu Zulu.

This is a really beautiful poem and Ode to Africa. I like your writing style and the natural way in which you express yourself noting with ease the connections between common human elements and complex human emotions and feelings. Well done.
