Tiv Princess

1

Princess

The sun rise of the Tiv!

From the Crowns crest

You wore a lace, weaved

Of many, herbs, jute, wool

2

In the midst of all

You stand dazzling in the sun rise

Hovering over others like the Iroko, tall,

Beautiful, with such grace and height

Leaving men wanting of desires

***

Commentary:

Tiv: People of Middle belt of Nigeria. Great farmers and hospitable people occupying regions of Benue and Taraba states of Nigeria.

Iroko: a great tree of the forest regions of Nigeria.
