Eko’s Echo


can you hear her beating heart? the echo of eko!

her eyesight a thousand lights , burning bright and she won’t let go

till the pearl from the oyster in her ocean is your’s to beckon and call

as you follow down the labyrinth,and she catches your fall

and she’s dancing on a rhythm ,only know to her and those-

who know where the stars shine brightest and how the constellations pose

of mirrors and voices, a lady of choices

and she sings the muses song to drown out the noises

and her gaze is of longing, nurture and a crown

as she kisses your forehead and puts on you a gown

of culture and a new sound-that her children long to say

eko o ni baje oooo – may she forever remain this way
