In The Long Town - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

In the long town
The streets be long
The streets be cavalier
The home of long knights

Home of the long swords
Arrows in the night
I want to be
Where the sun has slept
With the straight waters on
The horizon line.

Where the long nights
Are nights of peace
Where the long nights
Are places where enemies sleep
And war no longer on each other.
I want.
I want to be.

For in the silent nights
Many a spirit roams
Secret but gallantly
As fast as the long
Swords at night
That as arrows be.

The verses drip, drip
Slowly yet
They drip a peace,
A sunset long gone
That is still as yet
On grips of Earth
Where the long nights
Be nights of peace.
