The green of the bush, The stillness and complete silence. Africa speaks to me in soft sounds Makutsi whispers the song of the bush Elephants rumble and trumpet and astound you, The Lion sits quietly and yawns at the Idea of all of the excitement, The young Rhino dances and prances and all the while the statuesque Giraffe oversees the happenings of the day. African women break into song and dance to celebrate a birthday And bring great delight to all. Africa where the stars outshine us all and I am home again. Poem written by Barbara Sisson form Adelaide whilst on Makutsi in April 2010
