A tribute to Penny Walker

Penny walker had a house

A tranquil place filled

With love and care

But now she made it ours too

Penny gave us her house

Housing all.

Taking away our homeless shame

And clothing us with a name home

Our house, the one that Penny gave us

Is a peace garden, where all plants grow

Just like us

The human exotic plants

Call this place home

There is a Zimbabwean cabbage

Rhubarb that endures all weather all year round

It never changes,

Green peace and love all year round

Never dying like Penny’s love.
