AfroPoets Famous Writers
I shall make a song like you hair .
Gold-woven with shadows green-tinged,
And I shall play with my song
As my fingers might play with your hair.
Deep in my heart
I shall play with my song of you,
I shall laugh
At its sensitive lustre .
I shall wrap my song in a blanket,
Blue like your eyes are blue
With tiny shots of silver.
I shall wrap it caressingly,
I shall sing a lullaby
To the song I have made
Of your hair and eyes .
And you will never know
That deep in my heart
I shelter a song for you
Written by Gwendolyn Bennett (1902-1981)
