extract from POEM TO HER DAUGHTER


Daughter, take this amulet
tie it with cord and caring
I'll make you a chain of coral and pearl to glow on your neck..
I'll dress you nobly.
A gold clasp too - fine, without flaw
to keep with you always..
When you bathe, sprinkle perfume, and weave your hair in braids...
String jasmine for the counterpaine.
Wear your clothes like a bride,
for your feet anklets, bracelets for your arms...
Don't forget rosewater,
don't forget henna for the palms of your hands..

Hi D, this is lovely. The author has a Bantu language name, from central Africa, either Congo, Angola or nearby countries. I'd be curious to know more about her. Thanks for sharing this. M.
