The stars put out their lamps
Leaving the grey sky
The moon compensating, smiled meekly
A clear ball
Different from yesterday’s banana
I stayed an eternity with you
But just as my heart counted a second
The night rolled its mat
Bringing in the harsh reality of day.
In this collection Su’eddie Vershima Agema encloses all the experiences that is life culminating to final moments.
Beneath it all rings a strong song of hope.
The poems all come together to form these – a casket of verse in tales one shouldn’t tell.
The launch is for Merit House, Maitama, Abuja. 8th June 2013.
Su’eddie Vershima Agema is Editor, Literary Missionary and Vice Chairman Benue Association of Nigerian Authors.
EDITOR’S COMMENT: Su’eddie is one of the poets I have great respect for. His verses are rich and deep…for long, we’ve been friends and he has been a staunch supporter of the WRRPoetry project.
I have seen the book…Trust me, its worth buying. Something to keep for the yet unborn.
I am a member of the WRR editorial team.
