Africa's silent maestro,

great lion with noiseless landmarks,

my brother of the eastern thunders.


Mighty giant with a stroke of fires,

achiever from the forgotten place of the

world's birthplace.

Silent, sturdy

humble inventor,

magic fingers, with unsearchable thinkings

A surprise like a stroke of falling waters.


The imagination behind the world's


the mind that needled the world together

with a smithy smile.

Amazing fingers

imagination par excellence

whose mind itself a question or wonder?

That's EMEAGWALI my nigerian kinsman

in a farther land than home,


the surprise of many who think Africa

as thoughtless.
