Treasure Island

Musa Ndhlovu

(1994 April 04 / SOUTH AFRICA MPUMALANGA)

Ubusuku nemini Abufani!


Ngisaba into eyendzeka inyezi icalile,
Ngithanda into eyendzeka ilanga licalile.
Latjinga bafuna ukucaleka;
Lahlaba ilanga abanye abasacaleki.
Kazi litjhada lani ebusuku?
Ebesuku awa! Emini iye, kazi
Ungayikhamba ungaphakamisi endleleni.
Ebusuku ayaketuka! Emini ayawolwa.
Ngizifihlela into eyendzeka inyezi icalile,
Ngizikhiphela into eyendzeka ilanga licalile.
Intjalo zithaba lihlabile;
Ebusuku uzithola zidanile.
Imilandu yendzeka inyezi icalile,
Bese igwetjwa ilanga licalile.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
