Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

In the land of fairies


In the land of fairies
go to reside we
get wings
get flying
see the Earth below
blue-azure predominant
of seas and Oceans.

turn
me
to
a
fairy
sweet
Muse

me
wings
sweet
Muse
kiss
my
strength
to
fire

over
the
tops
of

with< br>desire
sweet
Muse
light
as

of
clouds
turn
me
sweet< br>Muse

Hear the distant bells
they ring the vesper song
with us to go along
leave Earth
that holds us so
till our enotions thaw

a

in the light of burning fires
that hurt not nor warm
but fire up desires
wishes and dreams
all genesis of inventions
and all sorts of innovations
swift, swift, swift
in line with Evolution

Old woes from Earth originating
forget
Old woes and old chains of the Earth
forget
look at the hands, they be free
move as you will
and let old woes dissolved
drown in the Oceans at
the fading day.

Our eyes are enmeshed yet
not blind except by Beauty
the which more sight gives
reveals more of her reign
part by part all following in train
where suffering reaches a point
and earthly pain.
O therefore come! the time be come!
To other sites we go let Beauty lead!
And below us the Earth turns
predominant azure.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,

For the sword outwears its sheath,
