Golden Black Sunset,A Poem

I met a young Ghanaian personality in the opening
 reception of my exhibition..He said he is a poet and
offered that I choose any painting of mine and he
would write a poem on it .So I chose Golden
Sunset and he wrote this beautiful  poem
 spontaneously.Since it was for me, he added
my name in it, though it sounds rather odd.
 
Golden Black Sunset

Pass earth before sun
Let drops of sweat tell this one
The golden sun ball radiates
The black beauty of the earth

Golden black beauty
Dripping with song
Work and happiness
One drop is for hope
One drop is for mother

Pass earth before sun
Let drops of sweat tell this one
Fertile is the black one
Potent is the gold
Golden black seed

One is for love
One is for dreams
One is for Manisha
One is for me!
