Emmanuel George Cefai

Silver Star - 3,235 Points (12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

The drear


The drear
the cemetery
the shrouds that roam

the drear
the cemetery
the ghosts that moan

the drear
the cemetery
processions at night

the drear
hood shrouds
Gregorian chants by starlight

and in dark nights
and in dark nights
chants of howls, desperate howls
