Thrilled to finally share another new videopoem with you all!
"Hymn to the Nile" was a sacred hymn from more than 4,000 years ago. The Nile River was deeply sacred and very important to the ancient Egyptian people. They prayed to various deities for blessings and for bountiful flooding from the Nile River.
I DO NOT CLAIM TO BE AN EXPERT ON ANCIENT EGYPTIAN CULTURE. My video is NOT meant for educational purposes, it is for entertainment only! Ancient Egypt is one of my favorite topics to read and discuss, I have always been fascinated by the history. I took some liberty with English translation to make the first few lines of the hymn more clear and easier for both deaf and hearing audiences to understand and enjoy.
