Bare Night Without Comfort

In a bare night without comfort
stood like an infant hearing a drum:
Shadows and green grass spinning
but clutched at a world without nearing

Like dark ball rising from nothing
hurling curse at me and full of scorn:
Bare night without comfort
stood like an infant hearing a drum.

Martin Carter in The Kind Eagle (1952)

Just hit your wonderful Martin Carter Blog. I was searching for the movie made using his poem, It is the Dark Time My Love. the poem is on the Caribbean Secondary Examinations Council's Literature Syllabus and I think the film might be instructive for both Teachers and children.

Keep up the blog. I'll pass news of it on to my fellow teachers.
