Ebony Descendants

Hands in hands and eyes 
To eyes,heart to heart and
Verdicts upon verdicts...
The hearts have merged and 
Nothing of asunder.
Ebony descendants.

Their loves powerful arms, like thunder,
Rigid insinuations yet 
Like flower,
So they watch all night
To see it never wither.
Ebony descendants.

Ebony arrangements
Nature's love horns sparkling 
Like silver.
Always together like
Lilies and valleys.

Walking shoulder high,Proudly
Brandishing ebony complexions
Like coco-butter or something
Like sweet chocolate.
Theirs is so pleasant.

These black descendants,
These ebony make ups 
These elastic African sunsets ...
Yours is hugely elegant 
Yours is truly excellent....
Thank God for your presence.
