Emerald Nmeri, leaves of green. rose in red. this star, twinkling white. you are nature's rainbow who paints her children with the colours of life. Nmeri, paint me red. paint me green. In a nutshell, paint me with the pigment of your skin for on its shell is Africa: black, beautiful and bright. with you is a lean distance to the sun, Nmeri for with my eyes I behold the delicacy of your greenness; newborn like foliage, magnetic as the constellation of stars, more frantic than the fineness of wine, and with your crescent is a motif of our love divine. with you, I know no war be it The first or The second or another to rise for with peace, I go Dutch in beds. scared? I am yours, now a saint you savor and tomorrow, of this same coin and not of blacks you will know, I pledge. Again I take this oath, green Jewel; So long as the air is your life; water, the root of your blood; and land, the rock which keeps us from sinking, with you is forever a walk one framed. Nmeri, every time thinking of one pearl valuable than gold I find none but You and with you will come admirations not only on Tuesday's paradise but on the pendulum's wings.
