SLS 2009 Online Awards Show: Farewell Poem

by poet Mozell Flemings

You know…….I’ve never heard an angel sing. Yet I believe they do’
And I imagine that when they sing they sound….. a lot like you.

A soft….. precious sound of joy, to awaken, and please the soul.

A soothing, gentle, and comforting tone. To ward away the cold.

A pleasure just to hear you utter…. any little thing, your voice distinct from all the others…..I hear an angel sing.

The other thing that makes it tight, my high opinion of …..Your ebony hues as rich and smooth and sweet as morning dew.

The shimmy-shiver that your footsteps deliver…… must come from royal decent. I don’t know if I’m correct but…….. Are you heaven sent?

Always a treat to see your ebony beauty, the packaging complete. In the original form that you were born from your head………right down to you feet.

Please don’t discard or take for granite what I say to you. Though I am just an observant traveler…..merely passing through.

Take these words before your eyes and never you despair. As for me compliments come free……Because…. there’s merit there.

Farewell our Nubian Sister farewell.
