Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Shefali


Shefali, she, he, hail, fail, sail, as, ash, lies!
But, you are my son and, you will always be my son.

Love!
There is now one like you;

Life!
Like fire and snow at times;

Neptune Inn!
In the land of your muse;

Scan can, in!
But, you will always be my son.

Shefali, sea, heal, ale, sale, if, ash, safe, lie!
And, to control your mind to the right direction.

Apollo Inn!
To learn how to do the right thing always;

Scan, can, in!
You will always be my son.

Love!
Do hear my voice once again;

Love!
Where is life leading you to?

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
