by Nana Farika
JAMAICA POEM: AUGUST MAWNIN COME AGAIN
Augus’ mawnin come again
Jubilation in di air
Ankcestors rise up an’ draw near
Dem noh ‘ave no fear
To visit wi an appear
As janga eena riva an fish eena sea
an in rockstone, an bush, an tree
An in man ‘art and walk about as smady
As dem usual do annually
Come young and old, come bwoy and gyal
Come tek part in di commemoration
Of Black people liberation
and dem emancipation from slavery
Augus’ mawning dawn once more
Once more is time to member di fus proclamation
Jubilee! Jubilee! Queen Victoria set wi free
Pickney come larn yu history
Of the misery of slavery
An wat yu ankcestors had was to do fi guarantee dem was set free.
Come mek wi glad bag bus at wi Victoria victory
This is lovely! Thanks for sharing!
And it is just in time for our emancipendence (emancipation and independence) commemoration and celebrations this year!
I browsed through the book (I-Lan In Di Sun
) at Amazon as well - looks very interesting! Good luck with that my friend.
Thanks again Farika and all the best!
