Poem about Nature
EDEM-ANI IS A PLACE EVERYBODY NEEDS TO VISIT.IT IS PEACEFUL AND FULL OF CHEERFUL AND KINDHEARTED DWELLERS. IT IS SURROUNDED WITH HILLS LIKE THAT IN THE FILM OF JULIE ANDREW'S "SOUND OF MUSIC".IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND NATURAL.

My homeland, my fatherland
settles on the valley of two breasts,
a virgin to behold,
Two sisters lead to her,
Akpa-Edem and Ozi-Edem
I am proud of her greenish status
Far from fraud of fertility,
Far from loud mouth of noises,
nor nameless crimes-germination,
and infectivity of experimentation
The moonlight outshines the streetlights,
As her brood listen to tales of nurture
And beat of invisible drummer,
Dancers, to the songs of nature,
With endless joy, and windy
Edem-Ani is indeed a beauty
Like the Garden of Eden
Her fruit-trees are the sweetest,
Ground on the toiled black soil;
her sweetest ujuru and ogbono seeds,
the awesome flavor of her redish-akwu
Oh, my grey aged great-grandfather’s childhood!
Look at her black nakedness!
Wrap with warmness
Why, your color has not changed?
Walls; the wet red clay
Cooler than the air conditioners
Woe is me! White civilization,
To steal offspring from kinky hairs
Yet, at dark corners,
Warm voices of flat-breast women
Firm black skins with strong ankles
Chat joyfully, on
The return of their grandchildren
They said you are poor
They boost of long houses and frozen paths
I do not know what is poor
I know the roots of your trees are valuable,
Your quiet and purple silence is an asset,
Birds, on the thatched roofs, are tourist attraction
