Egypt

Tomorrow night, I’m performing poetry at the ‘It’s a wrap’ closing of the Egypt exhibit in the Manchester Museum while they transform the museum. I thought I’d share this poem about how the word ‘Egypt’ has fascinated me and still does…

Egypt,

The very word sounds mystical,

Magical,

Conjuring visions of an antique land of gold buried in sand,

Where animals and gods combine,

Temples and sun align

Pyramids as old as time,

Egypt,

The word brings an antique glow,

To a young mind.
