Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

The glow-worms


The glow-worms
Of the night
You sleep
With them
Now.

The silent stars
And
Quiet moon
You
Pine with them
Now

And
Your heart
Beats
The Dawn
Its coming
Fears
Changes
Color of its face
In
The last minutes

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
