MTHOKOZISI NTOKOZO MAPHUMULO Poems
I Have A House By The See: His Name Is Jesus
I have a house by the sea (His name is Jesus)
I have a house by the sea. That is night
I hear one by one, the waves disturbances
Against the rocks where my house stands
With all ocean’s powerful force.
I hear the wind cry- a cracking, a force
As the lost spirits souls in their death
All wondering, complaining, what in grave and death
No rest could be found, but yet seeking and smacking.
My small fire burning, my tiny kindle give it light
I hear just a little bit how rough the storm outside,
I hear rough winds in my boat
Hear- inside is not ...
I’m lonesome since I tope the hill and lore the moor and valley
Such heavy thought my heart does fill, since parting without my sally
I sick no more the fine or gay but the one to love me
Her golden hair in ringlet flair
Her slender waste will bind me
