Rejoice, it's over

Rejoice, it's over

By Zoneziwoh Mbondgulo


One glorious day,

I went hunting.

I heard this lovely music, and then I listen.

Realized it was from a pretty golden bird

Singing in a flowering tree,

At falls.

Oh! So beautiful, natural you needed to see it.

Suddenly was this strong breeze that stirred the branches

On the tree and gently brushed each blossom.

Filling the air with this sweet perfume

Thanks to you, little bird and brother wind for pollinating

Flowering tree from which my sweet, juicy fruit that I love grow.

Then, I made a promise to hunt no more

And will go tell this everywhere.

And take it as a responsibility to see that our wildlife families increase in number by the day.
