Umhlanga

Traditional Reed Dance Ceremony

 

We filled the stadium in anticipation

The cheers they came from everywhere

Bright colors

Beads

Lihiya’s of every pattern

The beauty

The pride and joy of a nation

There were thousands and thousands of girls

From every corner of the country they came

The women of Swaziland are fearce

In all of their beauty they stand tall

Ready to take on the world
