Before They Died
(1965 / Abor, Volta Region, Ghana)

Before They Died

anytime I look at the sky
I remember the talks
like the clouds that drift slowly away
what were they before they died

anytime I see leaves gone from trees
I remember the walk through the fields
like the stand of flowers in our hands
what were they before they died in our hands

I will take a long time to know
how long the lotus in the lake
catches the eye before it dies
