DAUGHTER FROM ACROSS


In pursuit of ambitions and goals
I traveled and traveled all across our abode
led by the little star
the star I was advised to follow by daughters of the land
the equals of God

carried by the swift arm of the wind to the distant land
and I was regarded as a stranger but nevertheless
an epitome of envy, for the innocence I depict
they were strangers, no less my people

in the distant land a diamond beckons
splendid and calm like the blue skies
we bonded and complimented
and a cord was born
inseparable no more, , like the black waters of the sea

compelled by the little star
I touched her little but playful fingers
and whispered in the wind the goodness of my land
and a suggestion to meet the gods of the plain
...and we rode in the wings of the wind

In no time we were there
in the land, , welcomed by the roaring of the lion
confirming the need to co -exist
and we danced in the wind, we laughed at the tranquil
and peace punctuated by the giggling stream and an un-equalled melody of the feathered earth mates

In the Plains we met our herds
guarded by the brave sons of the land
and they welcomed you, to wit the rules of the plain

and as the sun rode behind the hills
we accompanied the herds
to the place of abode where you met our daughters
the queen of the plains, they cheered in jubilation
as they welcome you home
they sprinkled milk from the herd
on your tired feet
a sign that you are a stranger no more! !

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
