Hebrew and Tigrinya versions of African poem

One poem shown in two languages that do not use the Latin alphabet. Hebrew script on left, Ge'ez script on right

Dr. Charles Cantalupo, distinguished professor of English, comparative literature, and African studies, translated "Freedom's Colors" from Tigrinya, a language native to Africa, into English. His translation has since been used to translate the poem into Hebrew. In this image, the poem is shown in both the Hebrew language on the left and its original Ge'ez, the ancient characters used to pen the Tigrinya language, on the right.
