Treasure Island

Joseph Oladehinde Ibikunle

(31 of July 1988 / Alagbado, Lagos.)

Oh Poetry, Oh Poetry


A pen and a tablet
Words explored in a leaflet.
Oh poetry, oh poetry!
.
Like the falling summer foliage
Gentle, as the winter snow cascade.
Oh poetry, oh poetry!
.
My heart strikes in agony
For them that can not see your beauty.
Oh poetry, oh poetry!
.
The heavenly hymns the angels chant
All affairs so perfectly trenchant.
Oh poetry, oh poetry!
.
A sedative to my haunted soul
Libation of words poured out of a bowl.
Oh poetry, oh poetry!
.

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
