    Ħataf għabra
    mill-mimmi t’għajnejn ix-xemx
    Beethoven.
    Pjaneta ħataf minn univers
    jitbaskat
    f’xewqat li jinħeles.
    Ħataf ġamra tinħema fil-forġa
    u sammarha
    bl-imrietel tertieqa.
    B’leblieba ħalbilha suritha
    u nixxifha
    ħa terħi l-ġunġliena tal-qalba
    mimlija enerġija.
    Ħa tfarfar id-doxxa tad-dija
    ħa ċċedi mormija
    kometi
    mix-xejn għal ġox-xejn.

    From the pupil of the sun
    Beethoven
    plucked a granule.
    He seized a planet from a universe
    burning and yearning with the pangs of release.
    He partook of an ember basking in the forge
    and he flattened it with the shattering of jackhammers.
    With his eagerness
    he milked it of its form and he parched it
    to liberate its quintessence,
    to yield its energy from its core…
    to sprinkle a shower of brilliance..
    to flail
    a wastage of comets
    from nothingness to nothingness.
