Once A Timorous Shine - Poem by Folayemi Akande
Fair one, your peep i note, sweet early shine From your bosom above, did come a spark It was flawless as if washed from the brine On my pane, this saw me, wooing the lark. On my prairie did birds perch, but no mark Sweet motif, did their enorm echoes make. Oh, on my grassy plane did play till dark Shrubs and stubbles did splinter into flake. Rising by the pasture, resting by lake, Cruel Sun, erupting so noble a spring Wearing glamour, from crusty forceful take O cheer, you heaven prat, we have a song to sing. Come, come, coy summer, we beseech you come. Cheer forth your smile, in your bold charming form.
