Bats Screech - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

Bats
Screeches
Cries
Sounds
In
ATown
Of
Silence

Ah!
Contrast
And
Similitude
Side
BySide
Walk
Hand
In
Hand
In
The
Wise
Town
And
Beautiful

Beaut y
Spread her wings here:
And
Dawns want not to go away
Here
Nor the star studded nights
Of diamonds.

The waters wild
That leap from crag to
Crag
Though not here
Are in the heavens echoed
Above
Here

Vibrant
The night in the mantle
Of its own silence
Sheer:
Vibrant
The town huddled and
Colored
In its own silent line
Here!
