We would like to share with everyone a poem by Gilles Larivee. He composed
the poem during the summit climb and as everyone arrived at Stella Point exhausted,
we noticed that our "Kili Pace Bunny" was already marching towards the summit at Uhuru peak.
At this point Gilles rallied the troups and recited the poem. It was an inspiring and touching moment and I believe, gave us all a little extra shot in the arm to make the final push to the summit.
A Few Steps for Rogers House
A short poem
By Gilles Larivee
recited at Stella Point Oct 14/2012.
Kilimanjaro summit day
Steps for Rogers House
There once was a pace bunny - Mari
undertook a special journey
With her brother Angelo
To climb Kilimanjaro
She allowed us to pause
To reflect on this great cause
from the same fountain
As we climbed this beautiful mountain
this pace bunny we shared a dream
That some day we would all scream
From the Roof of Africa!
