Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

Scent of camphor and myrrh


Scent of camphor and myrrh
Issuing
From Earth
There be
With us
A human rights activist
He’s willing
To shed his blood
And
More
A Poet-Seer
And
I think
His blood will soon
Be shed in martyrdom
That’s why
Earth be already
Preparing for his
Parting.
