Poesi på en söndag

Midsummer, Tobago av Derek Walcott (1930- 2017)

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.
