Poems and Poetry: The Land Of Many Wonders
I’ve been to the land of Pharaoh
The land of endless sand
And a little rain
Peopled by light skinned people
The people who thousand years ago
Built structures that today excite
The organs of wonder of the world.
The land of hieroglyphic writing
And landmarks like mummies and
Tombs in the valley of kings
The land of famous temples
Spiritual home of the mystics in pharaonic times
In which much of mankind’s early
Histories were recorded.
Nile its lifeblood
The land that introduced new pictures
To the gallery of my memory.
As I move around the land of
Pyramids the charm of my adventure
Sweetened my sensation.
Return I must to drink in more of
The wonders of creativity and
To the people of Egypt I say
