At Creek In The Silver Spangle Night - Poem by Korede Abiodun
The sun threw its rays in the day
Touched my nape but neglect to warm the Me.
Dewed it is now that its late
Too many of its ray I tend to feel.
The moon get brighter than ever,
Too much I began to wander.
I could see much from afar yonder
May all night be like this, forever.
In the moonlit noon rays touches my heart
Out here my feet on the cold earth
Near a river creek
Longing for relief and peace.
I see the water stirs
From a point out of the still
The sudden flutters like as being
Is this my beckoning?
Shall I find a dome to hide?
Alas, out of the water a saw arise
A monster I thought
Will it chase if I run?
I saw it thrives for life
But I'm not free of harm
I'd fetch Our Pa who might lend a arm
This saw-fish has ruined my sneaky night
Be it whale, it will bleed a lake tonight
It took the wrong turn, and found its white light
Here again by the river bank
Certain times as years has passed
Sun still smite my nape
I am yet to be another free negro slave
All I have is a faint smile on my lover's face
And a saw-fish tooth as a necklace.
