Sabbaths, W.I. Analysis

Author: poem of Derek Walcott Type: poem Views: 15

Sponsored Links

Those villages stricken with the melancholia of Sunday,

in all of whose ocher streets one dog is sleeping

those volcanoes like ashen roses, or the incurable sore

of poverty, around whose puckered mouth thin boys are

selling yellow sulphur stone

the burnt banana leaves that used to dance

the river whose bed is made of broken bottles

the cocoa grove where a bird whose cry sounds green and

yellow and in the lights under the leaves crested with

orange flame has forgotten its flute

gommiers peeling from sunburn still wrestling to escape the sea

the dead lizard turning blue as stone

those rivers, threads of spittle, that forgot the old music

that dry, brief esplanade under the drier sea almonds

where the dry old men sat

watching a white schooner stuck in the branches

and playing draughts with the moving frigate birds

those hillsides like broken pots

those ferns that stamped their skeletons on the skin

and those roads that begin reciting their names at vespers

mention them and they will stop

those crabs that were willing to let an epoch pass

those herons like spinsters that doubted their reflections

inquiring, inquiring

those nettles that waited

those Sundays, those Sundays

those Sundays when the lights at the road's end were an occasion

those Sundays when my mother lay on her back

those Sundays when the sisters gathered like white moths

round their street lantern

and cities passed us by on the horizon
