A Daughter is . . . . so many things !

A Daughter is a Colony


A territory, a progeny,

A spitting image

like Athena sprung


From her father’s head;

Chip off the old block,

Issue and spawn;


A namesake, a wishbone

Loyalist and traitor

A native anD other


A subject, a study,

A history a half blood

A continent dark and strange


NATASHA TRETHEWEY -  Silver sparrow . . .A novel by Tayari Jones
