Treasure Island

Moses Muliro


The Story Teller


I am that bird perched silently on a branch
And watched everything as it came to pass
So I sat in that abandoned and gloomy ranch
Somewhere in and around that land of grass

I am that old man who came from the forest
Every dusk with a broken stuff to tell a story
And not to be seen again till many days and the rest
Perharps untill the reborn of another story

I am the ghost that stood by
And watched everything as it unfolded
As the days like fox were very sly
The years like elephant trodded by

I came from a different time and space
Some call me Peter the great witness
Others say am a born story teller by face
But I, I am just a story teller!

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
