Walcott, Derek: Midsummer, Tobago

Portre of Walcott, Derek

Midsummer, Tobago (English)

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.

Usred leta, Tobago (Serbian)

Suncem popločane široke plaže.
Bela vrućina.
Zelena reka.
izgorele žute palme
lahor avgusta iz kuće
koja letnji san sniva uspavljuje.
Dani, koje sam zadržao,
dani, koje sam izgubio.
dani, koji su se poput mojih kćeri
iz mog zaštitnog zagrljaja oslobodili.
