      What’s your favorite poem growing up?

      Mine was “Early to bed, early to rise. Makes a man healthy, wealthy and strong”

      So what’s yours.

      I enjoy reading The Rhyme Of The Ancient Mariner, and The Night Of Christ’s Nativity, two very long poems.

      I also enjoy Shrub Among The Poplars by Christopher Okigbo. And it reads…

      FOR HE WAS a shrub among the poplars
      Needing more roots
      More sap to grow to sunlight
      Thirsting for sunlight

      A low growth among the forest.

      Into the soul
      The selves extended their branches
      Into the moments of each living hour
      Feeling for audience

      Straining thin among the echoes;

      And out of the solitude
      Voice and soul with selves unite
      Riding the echoes

      Horsemen of the apocalypse;

      And crowned with one self
      The name displays its foliage,
      Hanging low

      A green cloud above the forest.

      Another favourite was: There were 2 little black birds sitting on the wall. One named Peter, one named Paul, fly away Peter, fly away Paul. Fly away 2 little black birds and sit on the wall.😀

      I love this back then when we will be using our fingers to represent the birds

      Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

      Chai! Sir! Your childhood was blessed with a lot of things

      Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
