The Blowing Waves - Poem by Akinbile Gabriel

O thou the Blowing Waves!
Upon the seas and the lakes,
The ghost without shadow:
Stride of surge across the land
Upon the trees, the singing force.

Raging within the bending leaves,
Thou but flying grief that swings
That lure the sand to rise and sing!
Invader of towns and borders;
The bane of the battle without boundary.

Echoes of chaos and unrest:
Song of loss on the dancing roof!
Off beat of cord; the ravages of haste;
From south to west below
From north to east; a boundless blow.
