This poem is very peaceful and very descriptive.I feel like I am in Shiloh
watching everything that is being described and everything that is going
on.

IN NATAL,SOUTH AFRICA AWOMANCARRIES WATER ON HER HEAD AFTER A YEAR OF
DROUGHT WHEN ONE CHILD IN THREE IS AT THE RISK OF DEATH, SHE RETURNS FROM A
DISTANT WELL,CARRING WATER ONHER HEAD THE PUMPKINS ARE GONE THE TOMATOES
WITHERED, YET THE WOMAN CARRIES WATER ON HER HEAD THE CATTEL KRALLS ARE
EMPTY THE GOATS GAUNT- NO MILK NOWW FOR CHILDREN,BUT SHE IS CARRING WATER
ON HER HEAD THE ENGINEERS HAVE REVERSED THE RIVER THOSE WITH POWER CAN KEEP
THIER POWER,BUT ONE WOMAN IS CARRING WATER ON HER HEAD.IN THE HOMELANDS
WHERE THE DUSTY CROWDS WATCH THE EMPTY ROADS FOR WATER TRUCKS,ONE WOMAN
TRUSTS HERSELF WITH TRESURE AND CARRIES WATER ON HER HEAD THE SUN DOES NOT
DISSUADE HER, NOR THE DRIED EARTH THAL BLOWS AGAINST HER,AS SHE CARRIES
WATER ON HER HEAD.IN A HUGE AND DIRTY PAIL,WITH AN IDLE HANDLE,RESTING ON A
NARROW CAN,THIS WOMAN WHO GIRDS HER NECK WITH SAFTEY PINS. THIS ONE WHO
CARRIES WATER ON HER HEAD,TRUSTS HER OWN HER OWN HEAD TO BRING TO HER
PEOPLE WHAT THE NEED NOW BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH,SHE IS CARRING THEM WATE ON
HER HEAD
