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.
