Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

I wonder that fragment by fragment


I wonder that fragment by fragment
We arrived in the relatively short
Space of three days
(that’s a human calculation dear)
At these lines, at these thoughts:
See, you can now
Look the immense Ocean in the eyes
And feel no longer humble all against
The sundry majesties of its immensity.
And
This fragment by fragment, humble to humble,
Made me raise my head, though,
By slow degrees, yet there, my head arose
Though it remained as humble.
