JUST FOR YOU

Written by: Esson Alumbugu

Darling I hope you 
understand
I pour not words like beach 
sand
Each finding a place of its 
own
Each sliding away before 
dawn.

I weigh out words like the 
cornerstone
I trim down sounds like the 
garden 
lawn
I cut out rhymes like the 
roofing 
beam
And verses bricks from the 
village stream.

The sum a castle
Strong but subtle
Sweet a poesy just for you.
