    Harvester: Elder Kovila from Kenya

    Second Place

    In mundane measures he speaks

    Of factory, farm, and city where

    The day-to-day of life is manufactured

    In plain words that speak of Here but

    Ah! his narrow hands beat out

    The stresses of a different weaving

    In accents of lion-colored grasses

    Undulating with sun and drums.

    There the ebony shining faces begin

    To sing, waiting in white fields.
