This is a love poem about two people with two very different backgrounds who are trying to find common ground to plant their love. The poet likens the one lover to the English alphabet and the other to the Geez Amharic alphabet, both these languages have their beauty and complexities, but how will these two lovers combine the two to make a love language accessible to them both? The poem is dramatic, and filled with descriptive and sophisticated language.
