Tenki Salone

For the denseness of your jungles,

Steepness of your hills,

Redness of your soil,

And the downhill driving thrills.

 

For the power of your downpours,

Hotness of your heat,

Blackness of your beach rocks,

Orange sand beneath bare feet.  

 

For the dazzle of your fabrics,

Brightness of your styles,

Skin and hair of many peoples

Each with interest in their smiles

 

For your twists and turns in history

Darkness you have seen,

Contrasts, changes, action,

Giving hope to Salone dreams.
