Cold In Obudu Ranch

The rain poured and
Soaked this part that I am
Mudslides dump their faeces
On the road,
Keeping tourists at bay
Then the cold came
To the ranch
Yes, Obudu ranch

Pines dripped in weeping tears
And some sun birds line up a bough
Drenched, freezing in the cold
Gander and goose gazed up
To the frowning sky
And the goose spreading a contagion of cold
Loaned all of his pimples to me

Here in this resort
The meadow still stood,
Its lark in the cold weeping
And the mauve flowers yearning for warmth
Till mist took over my sight
Looking without seeing and
Clinching the buttons of my cardigan
Searching for their holes

Half blinded by mist
Thickening into descending clouds
Ready to give me the flipside
Of a resort I so cherish to be.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
