Best Poem of Emmanuel George Cefai

A Barge Mysterious In The Thick Of Night

A barge mysterious in the thick of night
Sailed slowly to the somber shore
Beneath the ramparts of the dreaming fort
How silent how austere how still
The lapping of the waves against the barge.

Whence is the barge coming in the night?
Whence did its journey start?
By night or day?

No reply came – and none in that still barge
Appeared to reply or move or breathe:
So horrid thin the stillness in the barge
The barge mysterious in the thick of night.

Anon near the shore it stopped awhile
And there without a pilot stood, without a hope
Of ...

Read the full of A Barge Mysterious In The Thick Of Night

The Night Soon Fell

The night soon fell
The stars soon shone
Black draped the chilly air:
And many a day
And many a night I waited
Till time did come
That I no longer waited
And now the cool blue sea
Holds my white bones

[Hata Bildir]
