HUSH AWHILE by James C. Richmond



HUSH AWHILE


A man with dreams and vision came

To fight ‘gainst Colonial powers, for Guyana’s name

A titanic great and strong

Who toiled and toiled so long –

Yet with fortitude and poetic speed

‘Gainst those who conspired, he succeed.

A minute to give is not enough

Hush awhile

He fathered the Nation

Hush!

Hush awhile

A minute to give is not enough.

Your dreams enfold the clouds beyond Guyana’s land

The illustrious President Cheddi Jagan

Gone to the Caribbean, the whole world to see

The poet to say, ”The dreamer’s dreams enlightened me”

An epitaph to Cheddi

‘A stalwart of humanity’

A minute to give is not enough

Hush awhile

He fathered the Nation

Hush!

Hush awhile

A minute to give is not enough.



Poem by: James C. Richmond
