Verses for Ìbídùn

My Own Chapter of Psalm 23 in the Book of WIZARDry: for you, Ìbídùn,

Your charm of love is my shepherd; I shall not wander like a FULANI HERDER

—in the field, where man craves for happiness and serenity in woman.

You made me to lie down beneath your green pastures, sprouting beautiful flowers:

Ìbídùn, with her luring, dark pigment, led me beside the still waters of her heart.

She restored my soul, when almost sinking in gloom:

she led me in the paths of righteousness for her name’s sake —Ìgbàlà

Yeah, though, I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil while she still stands by me like a post:

for you with me alone; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

And she, in her meekness and lowliness, prepared a table before me in the presence of my enemies:

and she caresses my heart with her tender palm, as succulent as a baby’s;

my cheeks erupted in charming laughter

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:

and I shall dwell in the house of Ìbídùn—now and forever more.

(Àmín Ōló’ūn!)
