Poems and Poetry: Benin

Benin

Womb of culture

Mother of art

This is the land

I’ve so envisioned in fancy.

A land so boundlessly

Blessed with dexterity

In the work of creativity.

Bronze casting

Wood carving

Bridge between the

Past and the present.

The ancient culture

Of Benin but little

Concession to contemporary

Culture made.

Majestic culture of

Majestic people,

Ancient but not outmoded.

Built out the eternal

Past into the eternal

Present for the

Unforeseeable future.
