How blissful is your rosy smile
When you first fell into my arms
The grin on your upturned mouth so sweet
When We Dissolve In Blended Embraces
Your people produce The Best Of Raffia Wines
When I Taste The Sweetness Of your breath
In your kisses I merrily Drink
Of A Rare But True Romance In The Air
How Blessed is The Day I first saw you
In Bare-feet as you walked to the Stream
Carting a Water Calabash I Wish You Were Mine
But then you were not? That Summer, was it all a Dream?
Now you Lie In My Love
Sweet Wine In New Calabash
The Scent Of your Breaths Like Fresh Wine
Lie in Promise Under My Thatched Roof
