„You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.“
— Derek Walcott, Collected Poems, 1948-1984
"A Far Cry from Africa" (1962), Collected Poems, 1948-1984 (1986), "Love after Love"
