Chime Justice Ndubuisi (20-11-1984 / Onitsha, Anambra State)
Come forth and feel the sun
That upon earth smiles and burn,
Upon trees, upon mountains high and low,
Upon every back, and green grasses below.
It is the beginning of the year,
And blessing and love fill the air
Give ear to the poetry of life
It transcends the human soul and live
Beyond ages. Listen and learn wisdom,
Life bubbles forth; there are no boredom
It's in the solitary wind that blows,
Upon every face that the wind blows,
In the sun or moon that glows.
In every tree and green grass that grows
Listen to the music of life
It gives utter solitude and solace
To those souls devoid of unnatural feelings;
The heart of man, the natural hearts.
Be careless with books and written documents.
Look out! Feel the power of natural objects,
From the day earth's foundations was laid,
To the day, if ever such is assured,
Heaven shall meet earth in a crash
In which nothing would remain but ash.
Yet, nature to its purpose diligently holds,
Nothing has changed: the sun still shines,
The seasons, everything at its time,
Early birds their soulful songs still chime.
But us! The hearts of the world:
We hold so dear things we're told;
Stories, myths, legends and imported folklores;
Things that make the heart grow sores,
Things we cannot account for,
Of a time we've long waited for:
Doomsday! We have waited and waited
But you are not forthcoming, we're tired!
