A Poet For My Mother

Chinyere has done well yes she has done well
the women that gathered has sang a beautiful song
her heart is filled with joy yes she has done well
they sang and dance to the joy of Chinyere, yes she has done well
A jug of palm wine and dry meat for the elders
they ate kola, ugba and okporoko

Her joy for sons has put her in her place
she will forever sing yes she has done well
in the entrance of the village square her voice is heard
her heart full of joy has rested her fears in achievement
her utterances has a melodious tone yes she has done well

Like Jacob she has filled her house with splendor
like Sarah she has proved her strength
and like the virtues woman in proverb she will forever wear a crown
better days ahead awaits her yes she has done well
Dignity has followed her path to rest

Look her offspring is like a matching army
ready for battle they have gathered their strength
she is loved by one and they gathered their strength with batalion
a blessing that comes from above
Chinyere has done well yes she has done well

E.A Anderson.
