I Saw You Dance - Poem by Olufayo Ezekiel
I heard their whispers;
The bride-like beads on your neck,
The beads on your wrists,
And those on your waist,
Sounding in pride,
To the glorious myth of our great land.
I saw you dance;
The day you made the world your stage,
Trampled, Caressed, And paddled the ground with the sound of your appeasing moves.
I saw in you;
The towering figure of the black race,
That resides in the ancestral land of our heroes past,
And the fainted part of our already mortalized ways of old.
I saw it;
Like the Niger that flows endlessly all seasons,
The ever rhythmic flow of your amusing steps,
And the breathtaking moments of your flip flapping jumps,
That collide with the rendezvous movement of a flying monkey parading the trees in the jungle.
I heard it clear;
The free flowing notes from your throat,
The tender tonic tunes of your voice,
That amuses and lure me to sleep,
Like the tunes of the elegant minstrels playing reeds.
