Beautiful Madagascar

Of great ideas,
Of great words,
Of great works;
Please, don't come to me empty handed,
Oh, beautiful Madagascar! !
You are one among the lot.

Oh beautiful Madagascar!
You are one among the lot;
Like the year of the donkey,
Like the year of the bull,
Like the year of the dragon,
Like the year of the rat,
Like the year of the fish,
With the best kept secrets of your love.

You are our hope and dream,
But, you are supposed to be like the pregnant Girl next door;
However, with the muse of Africa to all who do visit you.
Oh beautiful Madagascar!
Pregnant with possibilities when, dogs are sold for fun;
But, upon what are the foundations of the earth fastened?

Muse!
Out of the whirlwind came beautiful Madagascar;
Like the seeds with hope,
Like the stars with a song,
But, out of hunger and nakedness came something sweet.

Oh, beautiful Madagascar!
Wake up to the tunes of Africa and, let me see your steps in Dance;
And, let others see your beauty when they do visit you.
