Sunset at Qunu

Sunset at Qunu


A Day no more deferred
A Day an Icon is interred;
The Sun sets at Noon
The Sun sets at Qunu.

This is a tall Tower
Crumpled like a flower;
The Sun sets at Noon
The Sun sets at Qunu.

Cape has a richer dune
A Diamond is buried at Qunu;
The Sun sets at Noon
The Sun set at Qunu.

Apartheid’s evil visitation
In masked manifestation,
Watches the bleary Noon
As the Sun sets at Qunu.

Soil on the promontory
Loathes effrontery
While Icon we dispose
To Ancestors to repose
The Sun sets at Qunu
The Sun sets at Noon.

His Life- brave and bold.....
Fast Mandela grew old
Hope they inter him deep
To relish undeterred sleep
The Sun sets at Qunu
The Sun sets at Noon.

Qunu, where he rose
Peacefully he reposes-
The Sun set at Noon
The Sun has set at Qunu.
