Nubian Queen ~ (For Marjolein)


I imagine you to come

From the ancient days

When the Kingdom of Egypt

Was ruled by Nubian queens

And kings called pharaohs

Like Nefertiti and Akhenaten

When the blue Nile

Was the mother of fertility

And her golden grains fed many

As far as Jerusalem

How the statue of the Great Sphinx

Was erected in your honor

And a pyramid, aligned with the stars
