My Black Queen Of The South - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

my black queen of the south
sent me a postcard
showing her city by the sea
long white beaches roaring waves
and surfing white of enraged seas
then calming to soft billowing winds
the quaint cathedral
the streets winding and sad
the cobbled squares
the houses thick and strong and colored to the mood:
here
here
let me come to stay, dance with the wind.
