My eyes trail your curvy path
As you envelope the city,
My heart skips at the green lush lawn
that plasters the rolling hills of Kigali.
You provide the meeting point with the
light blue skies;
confluence of our earth and the celestial.
You are the forte for the city,
breathing life’s goodness to the people
The sweetness of your many ridges
Pokes my sensation.
In quiet sophistication
you romance my sight.
My feet tremble at your posture.
Oh hills of Kigali, your beauty tickles my being.
