The Milkman Doesn't Only Deliver Milk
This collection of verse was first published by the Poetry Society of Zimbabwe in 1981 and has now been revised and extended. The poems show his closeness to family, to the old and the young, and his awareness of the needs and frailties of the human spirit. In touch with the rural and urban situation of Africa, the poet takes the reader on an ever-changing journey.
