She's gone At Last

Written by: ifedayo oshin

Leapy         Froggy                   heart
		                        Sleepy       s   l  o  p  p  y          feet

				Quick witted
				Smooth-toothed
Fast footed

Irresistible Rose radiant under the midday sun
Indomitable Lioness hungry in the wild
Inconspicuous Chameleon patched on a plant

She’s gone 
With her heart of gold
Feet of clay and her darting eyes

Gone like a chaff
Before the gathering storm
Like smoke merging within thin air

My African diamond 
Beautiful than the black night
Gone beyond reach, before my eyes
