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?

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
