Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

We too there inside


We too
Here or there inside
Whether on plains or inside just
A cage
As caged birds
We
Always have a heart
That beats
And so long
As it beats our tongues
Voices and thoughts
And verse and chants.

We too
Be like night birds
Though
Oft and by large prefer
At night to sleep
Yet
In our hearts
Even if so sleep
There the Sub-Conscious beats

We too
With the Sub-Conscious have
The root
Of all of us
Our dreams our ideas our deeds
And
These combined
Our thoughts and more
Civilization to all peoples addressed.
What is more of the root to human race?
We too

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
