Amuse: Singina likes my tales

“I remember your funny and lovely tales,” she yawned “You complete my day with those poems of yours!” At first I wasn’t sure of what I did right exactly, But as a shepherd I find pleasure writing about life, Telling of my travel, of my long days and how it ends Now, tomorrow I shall […]

Two Poems of Oke’ Iroegbu, The Apple and The Summer

The Apple blossom and turn red Before now the Pines tell her ‘You are not what we think you are’ For then she was green and young And when the wind blew around The forest side, she swerved about Like a tree leave upon a branch ‘I will blossom some day, you know’ She would […]

The Leopard Man

Once, deep in the heart of the hamlet A terror strikes in the dead of the night Tears, blood trails, and fresh paw marks After the moonlight comes a deep roar From the forests that live with the hamlet A terror descends upon the quietness Two small balls of light ravage the village In the […]

A tale of a Bard, at first

There was a land far, far away Told to have been located by the bay The day wake with good tidings and bird twittering The wings of the Falcon flap above the hidden squirrels The skies clear with print of dark blue One of grace and light bright hue The trees tall as the mountain […]
