Martins Akhoeneto Poems
Homecoming was fun, awesome But now so tiring and worrisome In the year when trees made music. Radiating the grandeur of glorious heaven.
Falling tears, like leaves in seasons For how many more years Shall you shed those tears, All for memories beyond reasons
Saboteurs In Seasons
Year in, year out you come In great delusion, an epic interest Packed in vans of delusive saboteurs, With pledges, both milk and in honeycomb
Octave I I
A time will come, Real shall it become, A day of dry rains Against your early bargains.
Black nights, blindfolded to heaven Anchored beneath, a steel hell Everything ill deed is given A crescent moon bade farewell,
Fly away O! Egrets In a myriad of beaut design Brighten up the blue skies In great clusters of whites.
A New Home
In the torment of my fears This torrential fall hit the coast Adjoining my little voyage Sometimes, we see beyond reason
A Call Across The Sea
What timid outcry we hear from here? At these other side of the western sea A place were chauvinist call us blacks Where craftiness and fraud are our tags
A Season Of Tears
The Old Man And His Son
Hate me not O’ son And blame not heaven For this earthly guidance I show, Why frown at my meager pay
Silence slept over their home for years And made milk-filled in several bushels Overflow, this painful smiles again And mutter her like head of camel in chain.
Here Nothing Works
Here every sound seems dead As wood in the evening beam Ready for sacrifice to the roaring flame Only waves of hovering fears could wash-off
Black nights, blindfolded to heaven
Anchored beneath, a steel hell
Everything ill deed is given
A crescent moon bade farewell,
Far from the cold muted sea
Many nights pass still
But here, at these weary sides
In the clapping of cataract; tides,
Still-dumb to my soul-sobs,
