' Senryu, your mystery (for Sandra Midas)


Senryu, your mystery haunts my nights
Like black history
Africa's taste of bitter slavery.

Senryu, your eyes
Are like a knife plunged thru' the heart
Bleed pains of my strife.

Senryu, for love
I go thru' ends of your world
To find hurt in return.

Senryu, my song for you water maiden
See you dance the limbo of my sins
In an eternity of man's slavery.

Senryu, I found you
By the shores Kharon ferries shades
Where you had hidden your love.

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;
