the iroko has fallen

to the great iroko's clan

the aging iroko has fallen
the great tree
whose shades housed my birds
whose trunk house the beasts
she has fallen -
the iroko of the clan
the clan of the ancients
the ancients of the forests
the forests of my roots
the roots of my blood
the blood -
o, the iroko has fallen
and the great eagle on the iroko
has gone, gone! foeever, gone?
