“Tropic Winter” by Evelyn Scott

Tropic Winter

The afternoon is frozen with memories,
Radiant as ice.
The sun sets amidst the agued trembling of the leaves;
Sinking right down through the gold air
Into the arms of the sea.
And the enameled wings of the palm trees
Keep shivering, shivering
Beating the old air thin…


Evelyn Scott, 1893-1963
