​Ages ago

below the plateau

while the satellite’s light bestow

 a glow on the bungalow

engrossed within the prairies

The beautiful girl born

bore a predetermine name

 which meant strength

A heart as tough 

as the mass a buffalo stampede

stresses on the ground beneath its feet

Although we be boundaries beyond

I bow to that fact-

 her heartiness be  robust

 even a gust tragedies 

To that tolerance and vigor

a commemoration of her prowess 

deserve to be acknowledged 

even the date of her birth be celebrated 

So, Nyathi,

the belle of the beloved savanna floors

let thine birthday

Echo wildly, splendidly

          widely, serenely

within all the folk’s hearts

yours touched all these days before.

  1. It seems to me there is no universal rule explaining how many words should be used in order to get a high rank for one`s blog. But, I like your opinion that content itself is more important than just a bunch of words.If the reader is satisfied with the blog, he will come back again and therefore influence the popularity of the blog.
