Tropic Farewell - Poem by Barry Middleton

the diamond of the tropics
is the sand of a crystal beach

and silver hides in the forest
in springs just out of reach

the gold is the blaze of dawn
and grief is the setting sun

yet hope abides at evening
when the heat of day is done

for then is the time to recall
the riches that came my way

the wealth of silent darkness
the grace of a tropic day
