Elsewhere A Poem by Derek Walcott 1 Somewhere a white horse gallops with its mane plunging round a field whose sticks are ringed with barbed wire, and men break stones or bind straw into ricks. 5 Somewhere women tire of the shawled sea’s weeping, for the fishermen’s dories still go out. It is blue as peace. Somewhere they’re tired of torture stories. Highlight in yellow these words in the text. What do you think they mean? Ricks-something that is stacked Dories- boat Comrade- a friend Mattress Ticking- the cloth of you're mattress Oblivion- nothingless Massacres- brutally killing of beings That somewhere there was an arrest. 10 Somewhere there was a small harvest of bodies in the truck. Soldiers rest somewhere by a road, or smoke in a forest. Somewhere there is the conference rage at an outrage. Somewhere a page is torn out, and somehow the foliage no longer looks like leaves but camouflage.
