Land of beauty, I can boast, my only home


An entry in the Crocodile Prize
Kina Securities Award for Poetry

My Papua New Guinea, land of beauty,
is meek, unique and impeccably suits me.
From the grassy wetlands where birds roam free,
to the humid jungles packed with trees.
From the priceless chills of the mountainous highlands
to the thermal coasts with sun-bleached sands.

My Papua New Guinea, I can boast,
has countless fauna and flora popularly known to most.
Like the Bird of Paradise with feathers so grand
and exotic orchids growing wildly throughout the land.
Rich in its cultures from days of old
and filled to the brim with treasures like gold.

My Papua New Guinea, my only home,
wherever the world I do roam,
despite the pleasures I do seize,
and despite lifestyles that seem to please,
there is only one place I’d rather be,
and that’s right here in PNG!
