Rhythm Of Africa! - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Dance, dance!
With the muse of Africa;
Tap, tap!
With the rhythm of Africa;
Moving your body and,
Moving your steps;
To the sounds and cultures of the various tribes in Africa.
Dance, dance!
To the rhythm of Africa;
Tap, tap!
With the movements of the muse of Africa;
To a continent of nature's muse,
To a continent of multi-languages,
To a continent full of colours!
Fron North, South, East and West;
Come to Africa and see things for yourselves.
Rhythm of Africa,
Rhythm of various customs and cultures,
Rhythm of the various countries in Africa,
Rhythm of the animals,
With the beauty of nature as seen around.
Dance, dance!
Dance with the steps and shake your body;
To the rhythm of Africa touching your heart and soul.
Tap, tap!
With the movements of the muse of Africa;
Rhythm of Africa!
With the muse of various races in Africa;
Expressing their cultures and customs to the muse of the rhythm of Africa.

    Africa is the only continent I haven't visited so far. From my textual knowledge I have a vague idea about the various races there. The rhythmic songs and dances I have watched in to. Thank you Edward (Report)Reply

    typo her: Dance with the steps and shke your body; :)

    there IS music in the poem, and it (also) feels like a tourism promo, ...which is ok! i see the topic is african lifestyle, and it surprises me that PH would have such a two-part topic available for poets to choose or have accepted. the poem does not seem to say much about lifestyle, but succeeds in portraying Africa as a mixture of many things, as much of the world is becoming i think.
