Oh Gods creative masterpiece
Drawing up grasslands and forests
Painting greens and greys together
Viewing fine pasture and hot deserts
Oh great traditional edifice
The guardian of our little hamlet,
Protector of our flora and fauna
And providing us with food and meat
Many are that wish to
Climb you up from afar
Bend themselves over to take off
their shoes or even put them on
For they have not met a kind like you
Afadja; thick, tall, beautiful!
Let your beauty be heard in far lands
That they may wish to come applaud your elegance
O mountain Afadja!
This is tbe second collabo I will be doing this month, and to make it worth knowing is that I’m doing it with Fampah Coyish, the Ghanaian poet. The image is the mountain Afajda in Ghana and was provided by Fampah.
