Mount Kilimanjaro - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

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

    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.
