There Was A Youth - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

There was a Youth
who be the grave
of his grand-father lingered
the dusk was wide
on wing
as the black bat
to demonstrate
the fading of a day

Said from underneath
A Voice, a dear Voice
whom the Youth recognized:
'Grandson tell the others
to help you arise me
to the former life'

Then sobbed the Grandson.

But the Angel of the Sword
in his loins
'Ah! though there be
it help not the ancestor
however numerous.
a descent-less person
will unfairly fare'

The Youth understanding
Justice went away
with a sad heart
an a bent head
whose brain as yet
had understood all.
