“Harvester: Elder Kovila from Kenya,” Ensign, July 1988, 64
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.
