'Not only Zhivago,
F'xi mkien maħbuba tiegħi f'xi mkien.'

An evening with Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci and Tom Armitage.

Divine Hypocrite (Akhmatova)

Life as a creation by an artist. Little was he aware that the artist turned out to be Stalin. Telephone conversation: Tovorish Stalin and the joy of existence. The post of a poet is retained. It is dangerous, if not vacant.

Il-Ħajja hija biss mument
biss dak li jiddeweb 
tagħna nfusna fl-oħrajn 
bħala rigal lil'llkoll

Life is also only a moment
Only the dissolving
Of ourselves in all others,
As if in gift to them.

Zhivago and beyond, Pasternak and beyond.

Il-futur mhux suffiċjenti,
il-qadim u l-ġdid m'humiex biżżejjed
meħtieġ bħal siġra tal-Milied
l-eternita f'nofs il-kamra tinstab.

The future is not sufficient,
The old and the new are not enough.
It is necessary that -- like a Christmas tree-
Eternity stand in the middle of the room
