Eulogy ‘ THE LEAP MONTH’
Uncork your gifts for home of winter,
close to spring,assurance of propitiousness ,
home of Carl Linnaeus groundhogs of 1758’s.
Feeling the Mediterranean night
till the morning.
Just as I learnt from Edith Sitwell,
talk beside a fire enjoys its freezing trees and grasses.
Flowers of early spring of Getrude S. Wister,
occupying nations in our hearts,
rescheduling mooting promises
to unsaid seasons of red gowns and starched suits.
We hail thee!
Foe of doldrums and abeyance.
Ajakaye Rashidat Olamidayo.
Title; the new moon
The new moon sprang on the peak of the mountain,
At the fall of the dew and rain’s birth,
Like a tiger, he leaps in his minted mirth,
It hops up to its fore with ease of pain.
In the speck of elation,
In the hurricane of imagination,
In the vessel of bliss,
In the coolness of the breeze.
It appeared brightly in the early morn,
Like a beauteous angel it show its face,
On wooden shutters of our abode,
And setting our tersed nerves at ease.
~~John k. Nasirudeen.
Title : leap year
No Mortal tongue could tell is tales
Nor could any Adam eyes weep in his memory
Because he was unravel with the best glow of the night
And he rode between the sun wheel
He was a mystery
Was he really leaping like a leper?
Nay! But he got the whole world leaping at his back,
Once in Four rings,
He shows forth his twenty four golden seal
Each endowed with sixty worth of precious gems
He is the leader of a Chariot
All days were made equal
But none was adorned like him
With power and will to change the hand of the clock
He is the Sun that can hides his Ray in a moment,
Lost between yesterday and today
Mystery that rodes on fictions
That captivate the soul of all mortars once in Four ticks.
