‘A baby is coming in Alabama’-by Mohammad Hannan

A baby is coming in
In the midst of poverty and sufferings.
A dream is coming in our eyes in
When we don’t have any.

A smile is coming to be spread over
The wings of summer-birds , in
That fly and sing–
All the ballads of lost glories.

A hope is coming and knocking at my door
It is hope-my long lost friend!

A success is coming , at last , in
Success–A wrong woman, lustful and flirting.

A green leaf is peeping into a lonely,
Pale tree in
A sweet , dearing hush in wildernesses.

A soul is coming within a soul–
A mind within a mind —
Will it bear the same boredom and ennui?
Like the oldest Cedar in Deer-lick Creek?
