Africa


You, with your
Violent temper
You, with your
Violent skies
I, your
Adopted daughter
Wake up and I
Stretch my legs
Through your waters
Slide my hands
Down your mountains
Arch my back
Over cities
Trying to embrace
All of you

For my friend Whitthread Wa Ga Mashiane

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
