Midsummer Tobago

Written by: Derek Walcott | Biography
 | Quotes (4) |
 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.
