One of our very own poet, H.D. Cardberry wrote:

We have neither summer nor winter, neither autumn nor spring. We have instead the days when the gold sun shines on the lush green canefields magnificently!

The days when the rain beats like bullets on the roof, And there is no sound but the swish of water in the gullies, And trees struggling in the high Jamaica winds.

Then there are the days when the leaves fall off guango trees and And reaped cane fields lie bare and fallow in the sun.

But best of all, are the days when the mango and logwood blossoms, And the air is filled the sound of bees and the scent of honey.

When the buttercups have paved the earth with yellow stars and beauty comes suddenly, and the rains have gone.
