MORẸ́NIKÉJÌ

Ará mi,
Beat softly the drum of love
With a mellifluous rhythm of Àgídìgbo
Accompanied by a flute of love
Played solemnly with tingling ecstasy
And escort by passionate
Kiss the Bata by drumming stick
As I tell the tale is morẹ́nikéjì.

Aimlessly to the stream of Okun
I saw the captivating beauty of Awẹ́lẹ́wa
With smiles revealing her eyín mẹ́nugún
Which could transfix Balógun in the midst of Ogun.

“Pẹ̀ẹ́lẹ́ Arẹwà Obínrin” I smilingly said,
Ẹlẹ́yinjú ẹgẹ́ raised up her eyeballs with a ravishing bliss
And her mesmerizing beauty
Seized my utterances.

I summoned courage from being stuttered
Mofẹ́ fi ọ́ ṣ’Aya lọ́ọ̀dẹ mi; I finally uttered
Amọ́lẹ́wa bi òsùpá ọ̀sán
Ọmọ pupa bíì ọ̀lẹ elépo ìdí ọ̀san
You ignite my day with brightness
With your sparkling state of gorgeousness.

A slight giggle escaped from the lips of the Adúmáadán
And grasped my smiles back from extinction
Then softly said; pèmíní MORẸ́NIKEJÌ
