As A Raven - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Wavy locks and the drops of the night,
As black as a raven and as sweet as love;
Wavy locks in the drops of the night!
As fast as your muse and as lovely as your mind;
Wavy locks with the fall of the night,
As peaceful as your works and as beautiful as the stars;
For, i have drunk my wine with my milk and,
I have eaten my honeycomb with my molasses! !
But, where has my beloved gone to?
For, white and ruddy is her bed.
Her hiar is like the flock of goats sweeping down!
But, behold the bed of beauty with the sweet smell of her love;
For, her two breasts are like two fawns which feeds among the lilies,
However, the night is as black as the raven and as sweet as love.
