MANDELA They Dance for You (tetractys poem)

by Leonard Dabydeen

In

dying

for freedom

enigmatic

they can see the light in his glowing eyes.

*Mandela, they dance for you overjoyed

knowing how much

confidence

you give

them.

*Nelson Mandela (1918-2013) first black President of South Africa.

A liberator, freedom-fighter and an icon of non-violence for peace

among his people.
