An ode to Mama Lyamuya....
To Mama Lyamuya, a matriarch so divine,
In your garden of love, roots of grace entwine.
1984 marked the birth of your green embrace,
A legacy planted with each tender embrace.
In the mountain lodge, where hospitality weaves,
Your spirit lingers in the rustle of leaves.
As you tended the blooms, and Father steered the way,
A haven emerged, where warmth holds sway.
Ode to Mama Lyamuya,
with BABYLON LODGE GARDEN hands that sow,
In the soil of memories, your essence continues to grow.
With every bloom, a tale of love and care,
A garden of joy, a legacy rare.
