To your health

by

Julian Bibang Oyee



Cadence and rhyme,

This is my song.

Firm and with cloaks

I climb to the top.

In the dark of night

my muse spins out

the calm sea

without bitterness.

The virgin forest,

the idle life,

with my lovely Tony

who arises in dreams.

Hail, Conakry!

Bravo September!

Health that always

wishes you “ntum afry.”

To your health! To your health!
