Spirit of Bermuda

Island attraction: the natural beauty and charm that make Bermuda a popular destination (Photograph by Blaire Simmons)

Dear Sir,

A poem from a first-time visitor to the island, dedicated to the many generous souls we encountered. You are joy, you are life. Worldly and local, generous and complex. Thank you for making our first trip to the island magical.

The Spirit of Bermuda

The Spirit of Bermuda is love

The language translated in action

Then Joy, depthless joy

If you spread it, not keep it

It compounds for ever

Sparkling gold

The Spirit of Bermuda

Is a tumbler of tested souls

Souls who have lived

Mysterious bends

To gold

To God
