Shamba Kaunda

(20 january 1991 / Malawi)


Long and sweet night it will be,
Night for only you and me,
I pray for dawn not to come,
For the song to be sang all night is one,
I plead for daylight to wait,
For this night decides our fate,
I beg darkness to stay,
For morn will take this sweetness away,
Twilight be patient please,
And tell dusk to be at ease,
Let the moon beam,
For this night is for me and my dream,
I cast incantations upon owls to be quite,
For us to sleep and dream and snore all night.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
