15 POEMS OF GUYANA – By Dmitri Allicock

15 poems


By Dmitri Allicock



 So beautiful an evening, calm and free

Ladies and Gentlemen, relishing the sea

Kind breeze tempers air of tropical sun

Cool and pleasant reprieve, day is done   

West Indies Venice of protected coast

Eloquent attire of promenade that boast

Waistcoat, bow tie, hat & cane enshrine

Corset, ankle dresses& high collar refine

Etiquette of exotic plumes and passion

Glamourous wide brim hats of fashion

1920 image of time that takes you there

A Sunday evening by the seawalls, so dear

    Argh, Dmitri, memories are made of this. As a young man in the early 1960’s, I used to go to the seawall every morning with my friends to workout. There is a shelter in the background – just beyond the tree, we used to do chin-ups, and sit on the bench at the shelter and place our feet under the building for an anchor and do sit-ups. Looking back, we were never afraid of being molested or anyone harming us at 05:00 o’clock in the morning – walking along Lamaha Street, Camp Street and the Seawall to Kitty and back. It was dark when we started out from Alberttown, but the sun was up by the time we started back for home.

    I was telling my friends in Canada that where there were bicycles, there are now motorcycles and cars. Today, even with the increase in traffic, exhaust emission is not an issue on the Seawall with the sea-breeze – it still is as beautiful as ever.
