From Whence I Found This Love - Poem by Ray Anyasi

From nine Oni street a nascent baby cried
To his vital needs the modest family tried
Despite luxury and wants placed above
How would I ever ever forget this place
From whence I found this love.

Maku Maza was the King on the saddle
Bringing me up this way good from cradle
To a perfect gentleman, a lion and a dove
How would I ever ever forget his face
From whence I found this love.

To the dungeon and palace she had been
The faces of slaves and kings she had seen
Virtuous was Philo and charming at the stove
How would I ever ever forget her grace
From whence I found this love.

Peace was the watchword even in a storm
From 'lere to 'time to Ijegun it takes all form
Eyes on Christ so fixed even as we rove
How strong we grew all along the race
Form whence I found this love.

Chris is certainly the rock made by Elohim
Emy proves again you can well trust in him
Nne and Nnam presents virtue and resolve
How would I ever ever forget this race
From whence I found this love.
