Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

Before the night has patches of blue


Before the night has patches of blue
to be seen by the stars and
the rotating moons, the slow
rotating moons, only,
only, I repeat,
and by some Muse-chosen Poet Seer
with tears in his eyes looking
looking profound a thinker
too
for answers, for inspirations
from the darkening heavens

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
