Graham Hardie Poetry


Memories of Africa

My lineage is in Lagos; my blood in Nairobi; my heritage
In Mombassa; my faith in Soweto and my identity in Lusaka.
I was born of the land of ibex; kudu; gazelle; meerkat and lion
And here I remain and here I find the kudos of my soul among
The lianas and the song of the ibis.
