Bronze Star - 6,435 Points (13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

The Sad Dam! !


The sad dam! !
Dried,
Without water;
Wire, aspire!
Waiting for the rain.
The sad dam,
Wire, fire!
Waiting for the rain.
The sad dam,
Wire, tire!
Waiting for the rain.
The sad dam,
Aspire, inspire!
Able, stable;
In need of water!
Scribe, describe;
Test, fittest!
Waiting for the rain.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
