Kitwe Flower
Iyee! Ilube lisuma sana!

The air is filled
With her fragrance
The sky  dazzles
With the colour of her blossoms

Kitwe woke up to the
Song of tender bones
Climbing the ladder of age

Seventeen steps
She has travelled
Eternity ahead of her.....

O beautiful flower
With roots of gem
And a golden stem

You flower
Crying nectar---
I wish to be the only bee
To siphon your tears!

Sefya ubushiku wafyelwe, Kessy
Lesa akupâle
