Warning Laugh - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

I
heard
the
warning
laugh
I
saw
the
warning
flash
I
saw
the
finger
red
and
it
was dark
I
heard
the
oak
door
creak
and
it
was
cold
cold
inside
a
cold
room
I
heard
I felt
I saw

the night is long
the night is long
the night is long

kere teli semi talen
peri fere meni valem
jonkert gere seli salem
ya gontert de veri kralen

ancient
language
I
heardthe
rustling
I
heard
the
wordsI
heard
the
cold
I
felt
it
round
my
hand
my
arms
ancient
language
in
that
ancient
place
of< br>cobwebbed
haunting
cold room
cold room
cold room
the night has still
to
go
deep
yet hurry
time will pass
hours will pass
Dawn will be near
Hurry!
Goodbye! Goodnight! Buona notte!
