The villanelle


The rising sun’s the only star in the sky azure
Pine n’ iris the only flowers blooming in my country garden
The sun’s the only star in the sky azure.

I am in need; I’ve no friend in deed
The moon that makes the night bright’s a joyful companion
Pine n’ iris the only flowers blooming in my country garden.

I live for the mere fact of my existence
Make fun of a land so far away, of distance
The rising sun’s the only star in the sky azure.

Pine n’ iris, water and sun are my friends
Besides these four companions, I ask no more
The rising sun’s the only star in the sky azure.

They say Nairobi is theirs to keep
The city where the Head glory and lies fast asleep
The rising sun’s the only star in the sky azure
Pine n’ iris the only flowers blooming in my country garden.
