Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

It was night.


It was night.
And monsters rose from
The dark waves.
And monsters rose in the
Dim moon.
Monsters? What monsters!
Figures of dark, in dark
Enveloped:
The dark waves rose
The figures of dark silent
Ferreted through the waves
And it was night
