Tiv Princess



The sun rise of the Tiv!

From the Crowns crest

You wore a lace, weaved

Of many, herbs, jute, wool


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



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.
