Poems and Translations

Ngapali *

The intriguing splendor of the East
Where the soft wind melts your heart
Where lavish nature gives you a feast
And a truly cool refreshing bath

Mountainous tides roll in like thunder
Then lie helpless on the shore
Fishing boats rush out all set to plunder
The ocean’s unending store

To sit under a shady palm
To drink a cup of juicy milk
To see the raging waters turn
Into undulating silk

A variety of multi-colored shells
Lay on the fine grain sand
No place on earth can match the spell
Of this enchanted strand

The luring dragons bid you “Welcome”
To this real paradise
There’s lots of fun, excitement, beauty
What’s more there left to advertise?
