Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

Rise above


To rise above
A million pointed swords
Of trouble
To rise and head
That must the human be:
The stars of heaven will applaud.

Not flowing strategy
Just
Set-piece after set-piece
At last
Will have
Propensity to the goal.

And
In the distance dusk the red
Leaves stage with a bent head.
