Epiphany celebrated at my old village
by emebet mesfin
the garment for the day is white!
How do all these people manage
to bring out such wonderful sight!
The gong echoing from Saint George church
heralding the ark with its procession began journey
to Jan Meda where all representatives of saints merge!
Christians ululating, applauding, eulogizing zealously
the drum beats burrowing deep into hearts from afar.
Choir boys girls deacons prompting diligently
people bow down when the ark draws near
decorated costumes of high priests mesmerizing
being part of this religious holiday
glory to the son of God on this blessed day!
