National #poetry day

As it’s national poetry day, here is a quote from Didn’t he ramble by Edward Kamau Braithwaite:


Bring me now where the warm wind
blows, where the grasses
sigh, where the sweet
tongue’d blossom flowers

where the showers
fan soft like a fisherman’s
net thrown through the sweet-
ened air


Bring me now where the workers
rest, where the cotton drifts,
where the rivers are
and the minstrel sits


on the logwood stump
with the dreams of his slow guitar
