The Sahel Good Giant (Le grand baobab - The African Tree of Life)

    Newer Older

    (Explored dec.10)

    At the heart of the African plain
    Stands a tree both old and sage:
    A survivor of sunshine and rain
    Silent witness to many an age

    But this is no ordinary tree
    For her trunk is hollow inside
    And faithfully she keeps unseen
    The secret of her native tribe

    For her cave’s a place of birth
    A haven safe from danger
    This womb of Mother Earth
    Is Africa’s child manger

    The Baobab stands proud and strong
    She serves her people as midwife
    It’s been thus generations long
    She’s Africa’s great Tree of Life
