My Candle In The Night I Lit - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

My candle in the night I lit
How eerie wild the winds
Roared on the plain and shores
The foaming waves now white now green
How leapt they in the dark
As in and out and out and in
They went.

How light and here and there
My candle flickered
Round the winds howled
Like madmen in the night
And I
And I
Like a ghost looked
Bearing a candle-light
In that abandoned land
That night.

And howled the winds
That night.
My candle flickered tapering
The white seas surged
The waves rose hundred yards
And more.
And in the night
That sordid plain I trembling felt
Beneath my feet:
And here and there
In the distant fields
A few farmhouses lights
Went off and on and on and off
This night
