Sculptor Under Tree (Zimbabwe) - Poem by Michael Shepherd

The sun so hot,
green grass now brown

under a tree
a sculptor
working
his eyes shining with -
all

all
is not lost,
Zimbabwe!

    And the shape in-which he sculpts may-be the greatest the land has seen as yet
    Brilliant expression, I had a wonderful image there Michael

    The Zimbabwe situation seems almost beyond the imagination of Orwell...

    if I hadn't seen this with my own eyes two days ago, I wouldn't have dared to write it.
