shush now

"…
shush now, sweet, sleep softly
sleep whole and wrapped in black
outside turns the earth, ah and oh
so softly bloused in blue
let the wind take your heartbeat
let the water your eyes take your ears
let the rain take you
child black child veld
child no one ever mentions
child breast child thirsty
the wind is full of heaven
with my voice on my way to you

(Laurinda Hofmeyr’s song)
