Treasure Island

Okoronkwo Jonathan Jackson

(31/12/1987 / Ebonyi State Nigeria)

And When the Storm is Over


And when the storm is over,
I shall again rejoice;
I shall again drink from the cup of my jubilation
For my sorrow shall be no more
And my pains washed-
When the storm is over.

And when the storm is over,
I shall call a banquet;
A banquet of plenty
With rich delicacies for the poor and the rich
To dine and wine in meriment-
When the storm is over.

And when the storm is over,
The feet of dance I shall lease upon the stage
In tune to the songs of joy restored,
Chanting songs of victory to dry my wet cheeks;
For sailing through the storm so heavy it is
That ashore our peace in serenity restored
After the sound and wave of the storm.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
