The Sound Of Music – Poem by Vimbai Lole




The sound of music makes us want to dance.

Get down till the sun comes up.

Young men drinking in the maiden’s youthful fairness.

Their bodies make verbose speech.


Unmoving lips,

Eyes trained to be fast.

Our bodies sing a happy song,

While the sound of music feeds our souls.


When the music sounds.

No fears are allowed.

All sorrows played down.

Only the volume goes up,

taking our hearts to dizzying heights

because they become so light.


When the music sounds we dance brother.

When the music sounds, sister our spirits come out to play along.

If the music sounds we shall dance
