TD (1955 / Harare, Zimbabwe.)

The Poet

The poet edits
Now his poem
Mind on fire
Mouth afoam

Each amendment
A new toy
Shining, gleaming
Thing of joy.

Dashing, brilliant
Pure delight
Brightly shimmering
Glints of light

But in time
he comes to know
The shining
Was all false glow

The flashes
Of poetic art
To calmer mind
Seem not so smart!
