Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

Tree on tree


Tree on tree in thicket
After thicket
Jungle wild and
Serpent hissing

Thought on thought
Even as tree on
Tree
Thicket on thicket
Be

Stretched long and
Erect
The philosopher gray
Searching through
The thicket
Sifting through
The thicket
Sifting

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
