Mitoloġiku l-għabex fuq l-għoljiet Dingli.
Mifrud mit-thewdin u t-twerdin tas-Seklu
Għoxrin, nistħajlu ħrafa minn Elf Lejl u Wieħed:
il-qamar ximitarra bla maqbad,
kampnar imqareb jixxabbat fuq għolja,
qanpiena lubiena tinbex is-skiet …
Max-xefaq blati mitħna wara mitħna tar-riħ,
’il bogħod, f’mogħdija sserrep bejn ħitan tas-sejjieħ,
ħmar, bidwi, karettun –
fdal ta’ Malta antika …
The industrial deadlock continued today …”
Nitfi r-radju, kull ħoss jgħib,
u ninża’ minn fuqi is-seklu tar-rgħib.

Victor Fenech
