I am the tree... - Dennis Vincent Brutus

I am the tree
creaking in the wind
outside in the night
twisted and stubborn:



I am the sheet
of the twisted tin
shack
grating in the wind
in a shrill sad protest:




I am the voice
crying in the night
that cries endlessly
and will not be consoled.

Dennis Vincent Brutus (1924 - 2009) South Africa
