Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

Was the heaven


Was the heaven
Yesterday:
Questions that were
Made
Fingers that were
Pointed
For

Dappled
Dappled thick and
Dense
With stars was
The new heaven
Yesterday
It had disowned
The old heaven
Of dawn the haven
The sea
Was dappled too
With non-motile fish
And
Dappled

Thought and
Thoughts of
Never-before
Are now in store
In the heavens of yore

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
