Eddo Callaloo and other poems – By Dmitri Allicock

Calaloo

 EDDO CALLALOO

By Dmitri Allicock

Oh delicate leaves cooked by the bundle

Noble nourishment not only for the humble

Market or garden fresh for the pickings

 Guyanese callaloo called one foot chicken

Poi, carila, bhagi, and spinach of the land of green

    So proud of you Dmitri! Brilliant! I can tell you are a patriotic Guyanese. I would like to purchase your book of poems but need someone to tell me where I can purchase it. I live in Ontario, Canada.

    Dear Mr. Allicock,

    Greetings. My name is Ramesh Gampat and I am working on a book on Guyana. I would like to use a pix (the one showing GT hospital) from your PDF file on historical Guyana pictures. I wonder if this is possible. If so, could you kindly grant me the necessary permission.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best, Ramesh

    Bless you Sylvia but no book as yet. Check out my blog embedded here. I have quite a few there on things of the heart and on what really matter in the end.
