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 Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
