Fiery crown of the Kpes
Guarding refugees on exile from lands ancestral
Brooding brow wreathed with cloud waves high and low of tide
Mirror reflecting flitting emotions experienced below awesome giant.
From sources mysterious, rivers and fountains red molten
Are belched suddenly
The invincible floods preceded by shivers earth-shaking
Prelude to gigantic vomits
Coughing out earth's bowels devouring
Terror of generations
Never committing the error of annihilating species menaced by extinction
Seeking protection grace within arms colossal.
Solid flanks of forest green repel invasion onslaughts
Petering out into savannah lush
Dancing brushes waving gaily in soft breezes without caprice
