A little poem in Creole for the midiwves here

Here is a simple poem I wrote while practicing creole. I love the way the words sound and come together in Creole.

Isit la kantan kay

Anpil bon travay nan isit la

dousman, dousman

Bon reve

Pra ke, mwen zanmi

tann pou nouvo jou.

I was playing around with words as the day was ending and volunteers were tired and discouraged.

Here is a happy house
Much good work is in this place
Gently, gently
Good dreams.
Take heart, my friends
Wait for a new day.
