Poem: FIFTY YEARS ON THE WINGS – By Dmitri Allicock + video

PERHAPS THIS FLAG

FIFTY YEARS ON THE WINGS

By Dmitri Allicock

 50 years already and how time really flies

Since this flag was raised up into the skies

The colors of green, white, black and gold

With red for zeal and dynamism to behold

.

50 years of the new Guyana just zipping by

And our Golden Arrow fluttering in the sky

Many returning to once again to feel the sight

To enjoy Guyana’s Golden Jubilee by flight

.

50 years of a journey into the horizon blue

The uncharted skies where the harpy flew

Oh my beautiful Guyana that makes us proud

Sailing independently above the fluffy clouds

.

50 Golden years of our gem called El Dorado

Land of many waters and shimmering rainbow

And a song of hope, My Native Land, I will sing

As we celebrates 50 golden years on the wings

.

50 yr Golden - Dmitri

    Beautiful Guyana, celebrating 50 Years of Independence from British rule. Land of six peoples, now predominant in the spotlight are Afro-Guyanese to mark Guyana’s jubilation. Indo-Guyanese are dancing to socca and Bollywood tunes in their mandirs. There are Chinese restaurants in almost every village and community. This is WE GUYANA.

    My favorite patriotic song. Made my hairs raise to hear it once again.
    Happy Guyana Jubilee, Dmitri!

    Lovely poem, Dmitri, evoking all my childhood memories ~ especially the children in uniform, I remember Mrs. Yearwood’s School!

    Thanks

    KAIETEUR FALLS⊗

    Oh Kaieteur! with thy gruesome splendour
    When your pure placid waters you pour
    Would you forever continue like this
    In true eternal rainbowed bliss?

    Oh Kaieteur! tucked away so far
    With a height more than spectacular
    So many lovers of Nature you lure
    For more than an eyeful feast for sure

    For if Wonders of the World they seek
    Then your greatness is simply unique
    Many sad, troubled hearts trod your brow
    With ebbed hearts you they gladly allow

    To change their problems to smaller parts
    Becoming oblivious of their trustful hearts
    Knowing how lesser and insignificant we are
    When compared with you the Mighty Kaieteur

    Your waters falling in foamy froth
    Down hundreds of feet of granite earth
    Engulfing spume spattered sprays
    And disappearing in abysmal ways

    The legends for aeons told about you
    Could hardly be anything but true
    For the spines your magnetic chasm thaw
    Have left many minds spellbound in awe

    If time can erase men from this earth
    Your beauty will be of greater worth
    For you standing alone, Oh Kaieteur!
    Would be the handiest work of Nature

    Awesome Norman!
