After Counting 50

Listening carefully to life with the muse of care;
With a day for a year after counting 50;
Harvesting the fruits of joy;
With the great power and authority around you today.

With the first fruit of joy;
Ginger, linger!
In the line of a vision;
Walking along 'Liberation Avenue' in Accra.

Path, pathology!
With the hope and the views of my struggle;
Then, to the 'High Street' of Accra! !
After counting 50.

Something special;
With a positive mind;
With legal services;
And, to plant the garden of life with the peaceful mind of peace.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
