Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

There be a captive


There be a captive in the
Snow
I saw snow
Ferreted
Out
And heavy breath
A brief mist
And then
The tiny feet
Of
The struggling hedgehog
Even we
We
Humans
Struggle in the snow of life
Struggle in the gales of storms
Struggle in the chill of emotions
Struggle in the sere leaves of sorrow
Struggle in the culture of the sad
Struggle in the pining eyes of despair
Struggle in the hunger and the parched throat
Struggle, struggle, in the last throes
Of the human rights activist
The Poet Seer that be
That was
That will be
In struggle, struggle, struggle

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
