Kunama 1977


Phoenix

The legend spoke true said the boy
I saw it rise
I saw it run
It rose before my eyes
A bird of flame and red
It rose from the fire long cold
It rose from the dead
It was the phoenix of old
The fire was hot en burnt bright,
there was a strange light,
flames touched the sky,
a mingling of dark and light
It spread it's wings and flew
