Poets’ Thursday: When

Poets' Thursday

When I painted time,
And mapped out seasons

When I sketched days,
And stretched out poles

When I colour’d the night,
And twinkled the ether
And foamed the seas
And trimmed the lea
And vexed the gale
And freed the dew
And sunned the day.

When I ensigned across the wet sky,
And made a standard with the spectrum.

When I doled out dominion

When I gave it all to you.

By Tetsoma Alice Amorighoye
