The Sleeping Country

 

By Julia Fredrick

 

I was once awake.

I wore a dress.

The dress was a swamp bursting with life.

 

I fell asleep.

My swamp dress bursting with life dried up.

My swamp dress became a dessert blanket.

 

My animals fled to the only water filled river.

Many called it home but others adjusted.

The others called the dessert home.

 

My men began to adjust.

My men ruled the river.

My men called my river Akhet.

My men called me Ha-ka-Ptah.

 

My men created a great civilization.

My men built great monuments, tombs, and cities.

My men were conquered many times.

 

My river and my names were changed many times.

I am now called Egypt.

My river is now called Nile.

 

I was Ha-ka-Ptah.

The Akhet was my river.

I had a swamp dress.

 

I am Egypt.

The Nile is my river.

I have a dessert blanket.

 

Artist Statment 

by Jonny French

My mask represents Egypt. The backround is the countrys  flag and the eagle is on the nose. The feathers help the colors of the flag standout.The brown square to the left is the constitution which is very important because they are goverened from the constituion and it is very important to how they run there country. The one right next to it irepresents their tribal beliefs.There are many different beleifs and lifestyles in Egypt. The 2nd one to the right is a pound. This is very important it is there currency. The one to the very right is a pyramid. This represents the rich and beatiful history they have. They have very beatiful wildlife.

 

 

I am Egypt

By Jonny French

I am a poor yet rich country that longs for a new begging

I see the primitive and beatiful pyramids and wildlife

I want food and claen water to serve me and my whole village

I am a poor yet rich country that longs for a new beggining

 

I feel the hot air despritley wanting a gentle gust of air

I touch the soft sand as I walk across the windy desert

I worry for my friends and family that one night a tragidy will occur

I am a poor yet rich country that longs for a new begging

 

I understand that we all have to help eachother

I dream that we will one day all be equal and never starve

I try to share and help everyone with the little that I have

I hope that one day we will all have a good life

I am Egypt

I don't mean to be a critic--but "pirimids" is spelled pyramids, and "Egypt's major countries are.." should be Egypt's major CITIES are...
And "Cario" is spelled "Cairo."
That's all.
