The poem(s) are below...


her voice awaken the moon

yon full-throat’d weaver –
she comes home, thither! 
again & again
oh, by the shores of my niger
& she comes, singing
like the griot of my old clan –
again & again
she vibrates her clan-famous tunes
with her eden’s golden voice
softly high & loudly calm 
by these niger chambers –
& the weaver sings, again!
with her retinue of songs
& her voice awaken the moon.
