Trinidad And Tobago Carnival

Rating: 3.3

Islands of these Caribbean waters that sparkle in earth's orb,
Like a kaleidoscope of colours in an artistic display of genius.We hear
A malady of intoxicating melodies which exhilarates, thousands
Worshipping at the shrine of steel pan at the Savannah,
Their bodies swaying like coconut trees caught in the Carnival gale
Of Monday's cadence, that ascends to the frenzied climax
of Tuesday mas.
O Caribbean Sea! Your waters dance like a troupe of Best Village belles,
Choreographed by the infectious rhythms of the sea-nymph Calypso, in Arima
San Fernando, Chaguanas, Scarborough and Port of Spain, where

Like a deluge in the rainy season, the carnival fiesta erupts as Soufriere's rage
