In The Long Night I Go Out In Despair - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

In the long night I go out in despair
And sit on this knoll lighted by
The moon face in my hands.

Before me stretches a low hill beyond
A plain: the hill obscures and hides
The plain that lies after it.

I saw knives flying slow in the night air
I saw hands red with blood and white despair
I saw red dusk pacing the night in his lair.
