Love Poem for my Country


My country is for love
so say its valleys where ancient rivers flow the full circle of life under the proud eye of birds
adorning the sky. My country is for peace
so say the veld where reptiles caress
its surface with elegant motion
glittering in their pride My country
is for joy see the blue of the sea
and beneath the jewels of fish Our country
is for unity feel the millions
see their passion their hands are joined together
there is hope in their eyes Your country is for living a legacy so talk the mountains with the children proud and laughing in its shade hear the distant cry of your ailing neighbour Echoing the talents of your brothers and sisters high above the fertile bowls of soil Let us take the leap to our country of love
