Best Poem of Gwilym Williams

Masai Warrior

Walking in the bush
on the red earth
wrapped in a red blanket
the Masai Warrior is at peace
with nature;
high forehead,
proud happy strong,
smile like a sunrise,
many wives and laughing children.

Behind him run messengers
with bulging eyes -
full of holy books and good advice.

The new road
will soon be rolled out
like the extensile tongue of the chameleon
to thunder
with jeeps and trucks
bringing -
cattle ranchers
ostrich farmers
genetic-crop growers
a shanty town
with fast food
a bar
and a gas station.

Old Man

Old man
fringed now in your blue land
long under the sea's spell
stubborn in your old stone house
clamped to the coastal cliff like a limpet
away from the madness of the multitude
can you recall a people
racing south on rafts
from an island's rumbling wrath
