Happy Martin Luther King Day!

Happy MLK Day!

Poetry fills me with hope and inspiration. So, I was very happy to have stumbled across this poem while sorting through a National Geogrpahic Society anthology of world poems. The poem is from South Africa. Though, it sounds like words that Martin Luther King, Jr. might have sang in his heart.

(Excerpt below. Found the full poem at another writer’s blog: Where the Rainbow Ends here.)

Where the Rainbow Ends

…There’s no such tune as a black tune.

by Richard Rive

Full poem found in the book: Voices: Poetry And Art From Around The World. National Geographic Society. Selected by Barbara Brenner.
