They Search For Me - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

They searched for me.
They went to the
Temple of the Muse
And found me not.

They went to the sea-shore
Where Dawn had just arisen
They asked Dawn
‘Come where be the Poet Seer? ’

Dawn smiled.

A little away from her
On the beach
Stood Venus bathing…

They asked her too

A sweet smile
As Dawn she smiled
Yet told us
‘He passed by towards yon
Woods as he saluted me.’

They found him in the woods
Face up
Whistling and thinking.
