Adegbilero-Iwari, Idowu

Moonlight tales the African stories
Children grinning their brows
As they chant the story of the ancient
Sweet soothing songs handed by history

To us who by richness of culture
Brightens the dark hours of night
With instinctive thoughts of succinct stories
Of fairy and the fair events fixing a folklore

We who drain the dullness of night
Simmering the turbulent sorrows of day
With night activities that quickens the queasy acts
Even with fairy tales that throws agog the sluggish night

Never here do you bed with worries
That drown in the ocean of stories
Puzzling riddles from ready mouths

Of the aged and all of us, sharing the moonlight tales
