(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

The Dawn-inspired seas


The Dawn-inspired seas
the wanton waked breeze
the lark in the tall sky
the trees on the hill's high
the cliff that looks the sea
as giddying as free
in this short ditty came
ghosts, shrouds without a name
for in their present state
they forwent their names of late:
the chapel opens its doors
the philosopher utters his lore
and in this little ditty
rare martens sing all merry.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
