Hope


Sweet chocolate children

Dipped in honeyed sun

Doughnut dandy,

Laughter on the run


Small hand round my finger

Dark on light

Dappled shade

Bright rainbows of the night


Sweet my children

Africa’s new seed

Grow in beauty

Where the brave have bled


From the bones

Of tragedy and pain

Build the ladder

To the stars again


Pushing petals outward

To the sun

Sweet my children

Hope at last begun
