Let My Soul Be Awhile - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

Let my Soul be awhile
Even for one night
On the Aegean.

There
It will hear the rolling
Sea-wave and the hoary
Coves
The Ocean surf rolling
As did
Grecian noble souls of
Long ago
Who long ago
Heard Beauty in sad language
Tell
This Earth's and life
Sad tale.

And
In that solemn quiet of
New nobility
My soul will fill itself
With such nobility
By
The water incoming caves
And echoing coves
Nobility
That will be richer by far
Than a whole empery!
