SAFE CONDUCT by Derek Walcott


SAFE CONDUCT


Rilke was whirled into heaven.
After that, Pasternak.
One smokes with the seraphim,
the other has come back

to plod past fronze ponds
with their harp-wide willows,
his grey forelock a stallion's,
his heart like Akhmatova's,

like a grey horse in winter
that, through thick whirling snow,
as this white page goes whiter,
whinnies, and is here.
