Ii. A Traversal Of The Great Rain Maker

Poem By Igwe Kalu

The children of men have come to me,
They say to me
'Give us our word for the rain,
And so to the rain.'

The rain maker stands, betwixt
The faces of men and their retinue of wealth,
And the liberty at the heart of the rain.
But the great man of thought…

'-The rain sleeps, when it wills
Let it be, lest
Its restlessness grows
Mightier than my chest -

'-Let men mourn with the rain,
As does the rain…'

I. The Place For My Love-Only You

There is a path asleep I'll walk with you
Like the aisle, and through to an idle isle.
There's there a lake I'll love to share with you;
We'll drink and bathe, and make founts of our hearts,

Urge me into deep vision in the scented air;

Light, bridging moments, come upon my heart;

Xv.A Golden Orb

A child is born on kedre
Of the great heavens above
The ulcer of the dark days
Sets to be soothed this day.

Xii. Behind A Troubled Silk

I feel the sight straining skin alluding
To your alluring waves of turgid tide.

Drawing me, to drown my channel and quell our surge;
