Emmanuel George Cefai

Freshman - 1,904 Points (12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

A child, a child running,


A child, a child running,
a child carrying a book,
a child carrying a book of
verses
whither you run my child?
whither you hide my child?
The spies are every where.
Yet
you still run and run
clutching always to you,
your heart,
the verses.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
