Emmanuel George Cefai

Silver Star - 3,235 Points (12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

The smell of violets, the sweet scent


The smell of violets, the sweet scent
of oats and burning chestnuts

the rugged field stones and the dews of
night on the damp soil

and the road that to the wide Ocean sea
leads through the country and the red
soil
