NOTICING YOU

Your nubile curves
Swung into my consciousness
With desirable appeal: decent
And dressed up in snug, light blue jeans, and a tee;
Contoured and compact and carried with panache.

I lend my voice to extol your traits:
Uncountable times it must have been
Uttered in numerous, flowery complements –
How you are fair like the noonday sun;
And fairer still like a glowing star;
How your eyes burn with a golden hue –
You’re beautiful, it is so true!

Ị na-amuke amuke
Ka kpakpando;
Ocha gị juputara ka olaedo
Na enweghị ntụpọ!
Ọmalịcha nwa dị ụtọ,
Mma gị na-eme obi m pọlị pọlị!
