Idanre Hills


I feel secure running
Into you stretched arms
Your dark arms that covered the heavens
I stood at your feet
Agog with thy myth

I freeze as my eyes meet the black knight
With green crown
I stood at thy feet
Wondering how old you must be
Yet in my eyes you're lush
Than freshly pick lavenders

Idanre Hills
I call out to thy name
Black knight!
I know you hear me call
For I stood at thy feet
Wondering just are old
You must be to look so young
In your regal green crown.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
