2022 Muspa Winner

WHEN

by Victoria Ojo Ilemobayo (Nigeria)

Darling,

When all stars are dim

And are tired of twinkling…

When the sun is gloomy

And refuses to give his light…

When your heart is heavy

And tired of transmitting melodies…

Darling,

Like Shakespeare, I will draw nigh

And flood your sour soul with rhythms

Of love.
