African Sunrise by Getrud May Lutz&nbspSkyOver the last starTh

African Sunrise by Getrud May Lutz SkyOver the last star;The parrot- windsSharp- beaked with yellow Nipping the bunched date palms…Now the camelsOpen their beeswax eyesAnd raise long necks,Rutted sound in their throats-Camles, pock-marking the sand with sread knees. Sun,The burn of itHot-coined to each eyelid,And desert-stretched, The caravan of hours         not yet begunCan you please explain the literal meaning of the poem and help me determine the theme
