Midsummer, Tobago

Midsummer, Tobago

by Derek Walcott

Broad sun-stoned beaches.

 ~ ❇ ✾ ❈ ✾ ❇ ~

White heat.
A green river.

 ~ ❇ ✾ ❈ ✾ ❇ ~

A bridge,
scorched yellow palms

 ~ ❇ ✾ ❈ ✾ ❇ ~

from the summer-sleeping house
drowsing through August.

 ~ ❇ ✾ ❈ ✾ ❇ ~

Days I have held,
days I have lost,

 ~ ❇ ✾ ❈ ✾ ❇ ~

days that outgrow, like daughters,
my harbouring arms.
