    Francie - Africa by Emily Dibb

    When you’ve acquired a taste for dust,
    The scent of our first rain,
    You’re hooked for life on Africa
    And you’ll not be right again
    Till you can watch the setting moon
    And hear the jackals bark
    And know that they’re around you,
    Waiting in the dark.

    When you long to see the Elephants,
    Or to hear the coucal’s song,
    When the moonrise sets your blood on fire,
    You’ve been away too long.
    It’s time to cut the traces loose
    And let you’re heart go free
    Beyond that far horizon,
    Where your spirit yearns to be.
