A Knew African Dawn
I am drunk in your heady brew
All your smell has overcome
Yielded I have to this precious tone
Yet diamonds of the ocean live on me
The salty taste that clammy allure
The aroma of the ocean forbids further
My exploration of your dark depths
Your ebony to my ecstasy
I live and breathe another moment
For your all encompassing embrace
The darkness that flourishes in me
At my supposed clear thinking vision
Never to live another day not to feel
Your enormous surrounding of me
Who else would there be to fulfil
My Africa that I desire
You the sunset me the sunrise
At midnight we shall endeavour to meet
And praise the old night and hear the new day
You in your brown skin me in my light pink
