Dear mister Opondo
There’s a lot to say about Kabondo
the smooth fresh air
and the bird’s chirps here and there
Not forgetting the many a maize plantation
and the beautiful fruits of afforestation
As the men leave for ‘kwath’
its a new day coming to birth
listen, can you hear the cow’s bells ringing?
look, can you see the sun rising?
its time to get up
and to have a cup of tea
but not before cleaning the cow shed
and watering the seed bed.
