KAIETEUR FALLS

Travel, like the wind, the world over so as to find,
A waterfall like Kaieteur, another of its kind,
Made vivid by the sunshine and gem-like by the moonlight,
So superb an apparatus, so breathtaking a sight;
But no country can you find, no country can you see
Where lies a waterfall that matches ours for its beauty.

Deep down Guyana’s interior echoes this wonder -
Captivating and impressive – renowned for its splendour!
The water keeps flowing past dawn, it keeps flowing past eve;
The sight will freeze thy hot blood; you cannot understand
How this true wonder was set by the God’s almighty hand.

Indefatigable and colossal Kaieteur,
Attracts tourists the world over because of its grandeur.
You fly over it, stand before it, and soon you will find
Happy memories indelibly engraved on your mind.
To see this ‘God of Waters’ on Potaro River
Is to feel something, happening to you, that lasts forever.
