Christmas In Africa

Christmas in Africa
under a Southern sky
On an evening warm
we all recall
A tiny infant's sigh.

Christmas in Africa
under a Southern sky
Where people rejoice
with heart and voice
In a wondrous lullaby.

Chorus:
Woza moya oyingcwele (Come Holy Spirit)
Al-le-lui-ui-ia.

Christmas in Africa
under a Southern sky
Where mountain mist
meets the seaside kissed
And a penguin waddles by.

Christmas in Africa
under a Southern sky
Where the bush pig roams
far away from home
And a sunbird sings on high.

A wonderful write. The ravages of war is never a good thing. Unfortunately it must happen sometimes to lead to peace. Great work in describing this event. I am most appreciative.
