Awéléwà - Poem by Oyehan Opeyemi Akinkunmi

In your eyes so tender
So captivating
I read the future of man,
The white of the snowdon.
Maiden of chivalry,
The deep tone of your hair
Whistles the eternity in your eyelashes.

In your eyes so clear
So transparent
I read the golden age therein,
The emerald of the peninsula.
Ewà, I call
Sea-goddess of chastity,
Your walk on the silent lawn
Reminds of the classic ages.

In your eyes so radiant
So fair
I read the verses of the Universe,
The blue of the fountain.
The half of my world,
You kept my memory green
I know your name not; so I call you
