Quaff Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai


Quaff
Quaff
Goblin of the night
The green sap of the bending
Green
And of the bending petals
Quaff
Dracula-like the sap.


You think
Green goblin of the night
That
The sap will turn you
Wise:
So you gulp
And gulp
The liquid treasures
That you
Little sweet thief steal silent
And secret at night

But
In the morning
Dawn will still
Arise
There will be breaking of the
Reign of night
Else
In the earth
And
Of the earth
Will not be cyclicality
