Whispers - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

In the château garden
The white marble statues
Sitting white-grey
Against the partial dark

The palace not large
Imposes its style
And silence.

Fountains remain neutral
Between silence and
Their silence be not deep
But shallow as their waters.

From behind statue to statue
Figures grey yet
Run in the distance
Between statue and white statue

All the same
The fountain waters rise and
Fall mechanical:
Even at night
Even as of night
