Two Poems ~ Nomonde Ngcamu

How Happy the Lover

How happy the lover
   How easy his chain
How pleasing his pain!
   He sighs not in vain
For love every creature
   Is formed by his nature;
No joy is above
   The pleasures of love.

The Power of the Creator

The creator is powerful. I thank the creator.
I live my life - I can walk, I can feed myself.
I thank Him whom I can trust.

I know my life. I've seen myself in the darkness
but have found myself in the light.
I've made mistakes that I can learn.

When I cry, I hear the birds consoling me.
I thank the one above.
