Find That Line

Poem By RONALD K SSEKAJJA

Wish I would find that line
That contour men find in the shadow of damsel eyes
That when she looks in my eyes I may find
The diminuendos and crescendos of my life
That when she lays her head down
Her chin hide in her folded arms
I may find art's paint and light
Past the spackle and twinkle held in those eyes

I wish I would find that line
That which traces in her chest
To form curvy bulge, and silent valleys
That her lips then may speak Latin
That same line that holds her heart
That which fences and creates the great walls
That Great men find hard to break

The silent nights beckon me
Her bright eyes spell it for me
But if once in this life time
I may find that thin faint line

I will tell her of the great county Kyadondo
And how my forefathers on this land
Founded this great nation and state
And how me and her are meant
To build one for ourselves if I found that line

Silence

The silence was there
And she held it higher
And we all watched the space
To know, and face

The Eagle

The eagle flew by my head
And I know Every tide has it's ebb
And this thought is there
To heckle

I Held The Wire

So shall i tell her of the time
The glorious moment of the rhyme
In that same day i held the wire
She, with such a chance borrowed the fire

So For Once

Well, light is for bright
When the mighty can't write
For what pun is in the sun
When noon can't great dawn

They Look Down On Us

The sun did surely cross the mantel
And every thing having been held
None of us could break the wall
And this bliss being such bitter made

Travel With Me

Travel with me pretty maiden
That skies may speak our mother-tongue
Hold my hand a little,
For when men close their eyes
