Let My Soul Be Awhile - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

Let my Soul be awhile
Even for one night
On the Aegean.

It will hear the rolling
Sea-wave and the hoary
The Ocean surf rolling
As did
Grecian noble souls of
Long ago
Who long ago
Heard Beauty in sad language
This Earth's and life
Sad tale.

In that solemn quiet of
New nobility
My soul will fill itself
With such nobility
The water incoming caves
And echoing coves
That will be richer by far
Than a whole empery!
