Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Overlaid


Love,
Like the muse of an iron overlaid with gold;
For, action speaks louder than wwords!

Love,
To see her;
And to be greatly comforted!
With the muse of her joy.

Love!
According to your faith;
So, may it be done to you according to the laws,
And, to bring peace.

For your liberty,
For your comfort,
For humility;
Like the muse of an iron overlaid with gold!
Under the ways of the law.
