Ah! The Earth Is Bursting - - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

Ah! the earth is bursting-
Like a woman in labor-
The earth is tearing itself-
It’s opening its bowels hideously-
All fly as the earth yawns
And in its pains
The horrid clangor deafens all
At last
What we have valued icon-like
Now like a broken pitcher lies
A thousand fragments.
