Sunday Snippet

I have chosen the first two verses of this eleven verse poem from the anthology 'Sea Grapes' by Derek Walcott:

Sunday Lemons

Desolate lemons, hold
tight in your bowl of earth,
the light to your bitter flesh,

let a lemon glare
be all your armour
this naked Sunday, ..........

Am having lemon and honey at the moment as I have a nasty cold virus ... so it turns out that this was sort of an appropriate post!

Thank you for your comments.
