The Pearl

The Pearl

"love burns out"

                                                              THE PEARL

With eyes like a Roe

With the fragrance of a Rose

So harmful like a Dove

With words of Juniper

Pelting down with love

Unto the virgin heart of innocence

 

There is a fire that is

In those eyes of a Roe

The fire of innocence and purity

The fire of love for God.

 

Garbed in purple Roses

Walking down the Foyer

On a carpet of Roses

With Golden legs of Uhuru

 

Into the plains of Ujama

With the breath of Utopia

To my friend with love.

To Africa with love.

    This is kind of mixed up, I couldn’t make out whether it was romantic, political, or religious.

    @myne… This poem is kinda ambiguous, both in its comprehension and preocupation… We have here, a poet who ganishes in his poem, transcendental love, mixed with the spirit of patriotism for his mother-land, Africa.
    What else!!!
