Your shadow speaks elegance Oh Fairy !
In the gleam of the rising sun
You stroll briskly towards the dam in glowing yawns
Awakening sleeping butterflies.
Your waist beads chatter in glittering spikes
That brews sparkling confidence
Sending strong signals of streaming supremacy over savouring strangers.
You walk with the rythm of fairies
And grace the sands on the paths to bouncing rivers.
The birds sing worship melodies to your lobes
And the dews leave the leafs to prey the moist of your skin.
Oh fairy , take a pause so the breezes may sigh a moment
From their service to your lungs the freshest air.
Your body is proof of the beauty of Africa
Your smile is the wealth beneath her rivers and seas
You are the emblem of her pride
And the mother of her children
Oh Fairy, clothed in the beauty of black.
Grace more the lands with pride and honour
Teach your child the wealth of your colour.
