Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

Whereby you too unfold the emotions,


Whereby you too unfold the emotions,
Your emotions, that is,
Hear!
Hear the wind in the pine,
The sad pine on the cliff
Half-dried, half-withered
Where was the Spring wind
That blew, the Autumn wind
That cooled and went?
Almost barren the hill’s side lies
With tufts of stubble for its population:
O! the ravages of Winter! And
Just started are: what when completed
And Winter bows its way before due Spring?

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
