Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

In Neptune’s kingdom there was a Crisis


In Neptune’s kingdom there was a
Crisis
Not storm or tempest but
The waters lowered
Shrunk all over Earth
The liquid reign of the Seas and Oceans
Grew as in proportion inverse
Land
Neptune each dawn watched
With baleful eyes
The shrinking of his kingdom
And humans grumbled all the same
For waters they preferred and
The waters needed:
Despite storms, tempests and the
Rest
The drought of waters they
Mourned as and with Neptune himself.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
