Beautiful woman
we are uplifted in your exultation
with the Balafong and the Kora
the Riti and the Flute
and from the hilly slopes in the provinces
the muddy rice fields in Jahali Pacharr
and from the swampy wasteland of the Tann
the serene and fine beaches
the drums of the great Griots herald
they echo the laughter of your children.

Beautiful woman
we are hearten with your gentle smile
with the Halam and the Bukarabu
the Sewruba and the Sabarr
and from the opaque waters of the shrine in Kachikally
the sacred ancient mounds of the stone circles in Wassu
the crescendo serenades with jubilant noises
the drums of the great Griots herald
they tell the story of your children at the peek of twilight.

Momodou, thanks for the corrections. A friend of mine just brought my attention to the misspelling of some of the words which you have corrected. He has also suggested for these spellings of the words used:
Sewruba for Seruba and Bukarabu for Bokorabu and to change the word peek to peak.

Once again, thank you
