FOR THE LOVE OF MY COUNTRY

Hundredth diamond
In the middle of an ocean
the place where it live a nation...
...Seychellois
Mix of race unique and unite
We live like a whole family

Yes!
you are the most beautiful one
You are the most precious one
Where your greeness is the decoration
Of its nature
Yes, the place I called paradise

With the inspiration of the poets
I will express
With the melodies of the singers
Will give echo to my words

For you, I will do anything
If I have to, I will give my life
For you
Good Morning, Good Night
Our unforgettable tradition
We must preserv

Because it is a precious
Treasure that we owe
Because for the love 
Of my country
I will build my future

    An inspiring, patriotic write, Shirley. I think it was Nathan Hale who said, "I regret I have but one life to give for my country." Your poem reminded me of his sentiments. Very nice. Love, Carolyn

    Great patriotic sentiments toward your nation, Madeleine. It is good to behold and I find it quite commendable that you challenge yourself to write of your heart in English. If you are not sure about the spelling, just use spell check to guide you. By the way, like you, I also speak French although I am not from France. I grew up in Belgium. I have lived in the US for 29 years. Thanks for sharing and thank you for your comments on my poem. Caroline.
