Enibi


I seek you Enibi
You dances naked in the forest of Odum
And Tango in the temple of Buddha
Your fame shames our father
Your shackle and rumbles are unearthed
Return at once to mother Ife
you graceless child
Its forbidden for a child to dance too much
On her father's burial
Least she steps on his grave
And spit on his soul
Ife awaits your return
Return child!
least sango bid you farewell

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
