Civilization Of The Earth - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

Of things
That in my verses
I have mentioned
Full
The civilization of the earth
Be made.
Such things sang
I
As dusk, and sunset,
And
Dawn
The windy days
And tempest morns


But
Also sung I things
Of
Yet another civilization:
Such
The cemeteries, the ghosts,
The shrouds, the eerie
Winds
The haunted houses
And
The haunted clouds
The haunted bays
And
The haunted seas
The haunted caves and
Coves
And
The galleries of tombs and
Graves
In sullen cemeteries.

In between
Boasting both
Conscious and subconscious
Wealth
The owls nocturnal
And
Nightingales amorous
The hedgehogs that
As dusk beholden be
Cross the soil paths
Under the tall trees
Erect
Firs, elms and the
Strong oaks.

Of these
These many things
Sang I:
Both conscious
And sub-conscious
Always
Mixed to some degree
Now prevalent this
Now that
Now equal mixed.

But most of all
Of humans sung I
With love always
On all occasions by
And all emotions,
Thoughts - a whole gallery!
And
Of the warmth-current of
Things that
Kindles All.
