As soon as I landed at Malta I found that though I could go to Tunis I could not go away without being quarantined for ten days and if I remained in Malta I must stay a week.

Malta Is My Love

Malta is my home and Malta is my love,
And I've got the birds at the coast to great you all;
But like the muse of your love,
You will always meet me at the coast as your tourist guide.

Malta My Sweet Land

Gloom of anguish, trouble and darkness!
But sail on to Malta to visit my home;
And give ear to me all you people from far countires,
For i now present Malta my sweet land to you.

Unto us a child is born and,
Unto us a son is given;
And like the zeal of your love to my home!
But the bricks fell down last night and i saw your nakedness.

V.S. Naipaul

When I first came to London, shortly after the end of the war, I found myself after a few days in a boarding-house, called a private hotel, in Kensington High Street area. The boarding-house was owned by Mr. Shylock. He didn't live there, but the attic was reserved for him; and Lieni, the Maltese housekeeper, told me he occasionally spent a night there with a young girl. 'These English girls!' Lieni said.

At home in Victoria, we have three dogs, Tosh and Lucy, they're half Blue Heelers, and then there's Torrin a little Maltese terrier. She gets more attention in the house than anyone else! Yes, I miss them a lot.

Entry Of The Sea

Oh you who are situated at the entry of the sea,
Antiquity is my life and live is my muse;
But Malta comes to my heart when i do think of you,
And i am by the wayside waiting for you.

Malta

To an Island called Malta,
To the place of my lover;
Where is she that comes from the morning dawn?
Where is she that has the roses of love?
I planted and you watered so,
Let us share the increase at last!

Find The Favorite

Our three cats is Maltese cats,
An' they's two that's white,--
An' bofe of 'em's _deef_--an' that's
'Cause their _eyes_ ain't right.--

Uncle say that _Huxley_ say
Eyes of _white_ Maltese--
When they don't match thataway--
They're deef as you please!

_Girls, they_ like our white cats best,
'Cause they're white as snow,
Yes, an' look the stylishest--
But they're deef, you know!

They don't know their names, an' don't
Hear us when we call
'Come in, Nick an' Finn!'--they won't
Come fer us at all!

Ruth

It is you that i have been waiting for,
Like the Island of Malta with the peace of love;
But maybe, it was a mistake by making love to you.

You are a beautiful woman and,
You are a woman of intelligence and understanding too;
But maybe, it was a mistake by seeing your nakedness.

Ruth, maybe it was a mistake for me to kiss you;
But you are the very one that i have been waiting for!
And i will always be there for you in times of need.

Ruby The Smart Maltese

Ruby is a Maltese with fur as white as snow,
she walks with Mrs. Cohen and doesn’t mind if it’s cold.
For Ruby has a gorgeous thick hair,
she is very quiet but doesn’t bark in the air.
Mrs. Cohen walks with Ruby wearing black her favorite color,
she once told me Ruby is her child and she is her mother.
Now Mr. Cohen said that Ruby is very smart,
and his words comes from his heart.
The Cohen’s love to walk Ruby when it’s warm,
they are visiting Florida to get away from the cold north.
Ruby will meet a lot of new dog friends down here,
they are enjoying the weather this time of year.

Byron

Epitaph For Joseph Blackett, Late Poet And Shoemaker

Stranger! behold, interr'd together,
The souls of learning and of leather.
Poor Joe is gone, but left his all:
You'll find his relics in a stall.
His works were neat, and often found
Well stitch'd, and with morocco bound.
Tread lightly -- where the bard is laid
He cannot mend the shoe he made;
Yet is he happy in his hole,
With verse immortal as his sole.
But still to business he held fast,
And stuck to Phobus to the last.
Then who shall say so good a fellow
Was only 'leather and prunella?'
For character - he did not lack it
And if he did, 'twere shame to 'Black it.
Malta, May 16, 1811.

The Guardian Of The Red Disk

Spoken by a Citizen of Malta-1300.

A curious title held in high repute,
One among many honors, thickly strewn
On my lord Bishop's head, his grace of Malta.
Nobly he bears them all,-with tact, skill, zeal,
Fulfills each special office, vast or slight,
Nor slurs the least minutia,-therewithal
Wears such a stately aspect of command,
Broad-checked, broad-chested, reverend, sanctified,
Haloed with white about the tonsure's rim,
With dropped lids o'er the piercing Spanish eyes
(Lynx-keen, I warrant, to spy out heresy);
Tall, massive form, o'ertowering all in presence,
Or ere they kneel to kiss the large white hand.
His looks sustain his deeds,-the perfect prelate,
Whose void chair shall be taken, but not filled.
You know not, who are foreign to the isle,
Haply, what this Red Disk may be, he guards.
'T is the bright blotch, big as the Royal seal,

Sunshine Of My Life

Firstly, I want to say, Christ is the Sunshine of my life,
When I'm down, or in trouble, he gets me out of strife;
When ever I'm upset, He brings Joy to surround me,
Yes! Christ certainly is the light of life, is what I do see.

Second, Missy is the next sunshine, of my day,
The way my pug does things, the way she does play;
She gets into mischief, but to get my attention,
But loves to stir Prince, her mate and companion.

Lastly My dog prince is a joy in my life. It's true,
My little Maltese, is a caring old dog too;
He is a gentleman dog, waits for me at the door,
Till I go through, then follows me, to him it's no chore.

No! I don't want life any other way, no change for me,
Christ uplifts me, and goes with me, every hour, you see;
Missy and Prince, are two caring pet pals, who stay by,
If ever I'm in too much pain, they all help when I need to cry.

Night Of The Swallow

The night doesnt like it.
Looks just like your face on the moon, to me.
And I wont let you do
What you want to do.
Its funny how, even now,
Youre laughing.
I wont let you do it.
If you go, Ill let the law know,
And theyll head you off when you touch the ground.
Ooh, please, dont go through with this.
I dont like the sound of it.
Its funny how, even now,
Youre miles away.
I wont let you do it.
I wont let you do it.
I wont let you go through with it.
Meet them over at dover.
Ill just pilot the motor,
Take them over the water
With a hired plane,

Roxee And El Duque

Roxee and El Duque are like cute stuffed toys,
Roxee is the girl and El Duque is the boy.
Roxee is the trouble maker for she eats a whole bag of chews,
Nancy calls her a cute nickname, it’s Roxee Poo.
Roxee is half Maltese and also half Havanese,
she got away with eating a ball from the Christmas tree.
Luckily the vet gave her a chew that would clear out her tummy,
I heard it worked like magic even though it wasn’t yummy.
Roxee’s brother is a barker whose eyes hide behind his hair,
he is from Havana Cuba where cigar smoke fills the air.
He will bark when he meets you hopefully you don’t care,
Roxee you can pet her she’ll be standing right there.
El Duque has a cousin who was in a dog show,
he won a ribbon which is nice to know.
Now Scott made Roxee and El Duque a fun dog blog,
I will put their poem up on a blog entitled Dragonchester Dogs.
So if you see Roxee and El Duque standing side by side,
come up and pet them, they are really not that shy.
