Little Green Bermuda Poem
By Hilda Conkling
 
From “Song Nets”

GREEN water of waves
On the Bermuda beaches,
White coral roads running away,
Pink shells waiting for me to come,
I shall come some day.        5
How would it sound to be there alone
And hear the Atlantic Ocean
Crash on bright rocks?
 
This island is a great rainbow
That lasts forever;        10
People go and come
And the waves forget them.
I see the island turn and turn—
A soap-bubble with rainbows drifting down,
A rainbow ball turning …        15
Always light, always glitter looking through.
My poem that began with a green wave
Has broken into colors.
