    Għajnejn b’elf faċċata bħan-nemel kelli
    meta ħarist lejn il-werqa.
    Intaxret quddiem wiċċi bħal arazzi
    li fiha jbaqbaq
    demm il-ħdura.
    Fil-bizzilla tal-vini midmuma
    l-arkitettura stajt nara tal-gotiku
    elf xewka merfugħa fuq rifda maġġura.
    Tertuqa li ssaffi d-dawl aħdar
    bħal tieqa tal-ħġieġ f’katidral.
    Ġjometrija
    li tirfed f’bilanċ
    u twieżen it-truf kristallin tad-djamanti.

    I looked at a leaf
    with the thousand faceted eye of an ant.
    In front of me was spread the tapestry
    in which I saw
    the green blood of vegetation pullulating.
    In the tracery of veins intertwined
    I could see the gothic architecture
    of a thousand ribs supported on a main pillar…
    a film which filters green light
    like a stained glass window in a cathedral..
    the geometry
    which supports the stars in equilibrium
    and maintains the points of a diamond
    in equipoise.
