Knocking on the door (Iku eka’ozo)

The time
When parents
Betroth
Children
Is gone…

The time
To knock door
By self
For love
Is come

Ku’ eka. (knock hands)
Ozo… (door)
If you
So truly
Love her!

People
Of Agbor
Will say:
So we
Are here

We came
For a charm
A Rose
Whose scents
We drink..

En’yi (we)
Racho onyen (came finding someone)
Si’kode (that will)
Bu’ye (give)
Enyi nni. (us food)

After
These sweet words
The wide
Long door
Is opened

Many
Sweet maidens
Escorted
Starts to
Take turns

Covered
In wrappers
From heads
To toes
Come out

We look
Precisely….
We pick
The one
We chose.
