The Truth Behind The Fairy Tale Rapunzel

Rapunzel was deathly afraid of scissors so she let her hair grow,
when there was no space in her room she threw her hair out the window.
One day the prince, a talent agent, climbed up hoping to find some new talent.
Rapunzel married him because he said she could sing and she thought he was gallant.

I read this poem out loud and the words came out of me from depths of my being, like they were written in me before I was born.
Such an interesting write by Derek Walcott👍👍👍
Heavy as chaos! ! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
My first time reading this. For me it’s impressive as a sustained metaphor and for its descriptions of things in the sea and parallels of them to things above. -GK
Treasure of history is within sea! Many are unearthed and many more need to be found out to know human origin still and so, history has begun indeed!
