POETRY: DON’T BE SO COLD
WRITTEN BY BERNARD GABRIEL OKURUT
And burn me with cold,
I prithee don’t be so cold.
I speak but to no ear,
My words you choose to ignore.
My love desperately beckons, and calls
But you’re lost in thoughts between these
What is it that troubles thee?
It, that makes you shun me!
I pray, dear wife don’t be so cold.
Cold hate turns my youthful heart old.
Light up your face with a cheer,
For cold frowns draw my death near.
Bernard Gabriel Okurut.
