Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

Jewels of the night


jewels of the night
you have to shine bright
to cut across the razor the dark
this night.

The pendent earrings you have
Shine in the growing dark:
The flames are leaping
And shadows flickering
This night.

And you
And you
Sweet jewel of the night
Sweet dark jewel
Whenever you smile
Your teeth shine in the night


So bright
So bright.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
