Jum Dun Karm

Dun Karm Psaila (1871-1961)

Dun Karm twieled f’Ħaż-Żebbuġ fit-18 ta’ Ottubru 1871. L-ewwel skola li studja fiha Dun Karm kienet l-iskola Primarja tal-Gvern ta’ Ħaż-Żebbuġ u kien tfajjel fuq tiegħu medhi fil-logħob tat-tfulija. Aktar tard studja s-Seminarju u ta’ 23 sena sar qassis u beda jgħallem is-Seminarju. Fl-1896 ħareġ l-ewwel ktieb ta’ poeziji bit-Taljan.

Waħda mill-ġrajjiet koroh li ħallew effett kbir fuqu kienet il-mewt ta’ ommu fl-1909.

Kien fl-1912 meta Mons. Pawl Galea u Ġużè Muscat Azzopardi ltaqgħu miegħu fil-Palazz il-Belt u talbuh jiktbilhom poeżija bil-Malti għal rivista bl-isem Il-Ħabib. Kellha tkun din l-okkażjoni li wara snin twal ta’ kitba bit-Taljan ħajritu jibda jikteb bil-Malti. L-ewwel poeżija ta’ Dun Karm bil-Malti, Quddiem Xbieha tal-Madonna dehret fl-ewwel ħarġa ta’ Il-Ħabib fl-1 ta’ Frar 1912. Kellu 40 sena.

Minn dakinhar Dun Karm baqa’ jikteb bil-Malti u poeżiji bħal L-Innu Malti, L-Għanja tar-Rebħa, Lil Malta, Għal Dun Mikiel Xerri, Lil Mikiel Anton Vassalli uWied Qirda wassluh biex ikun magħruf bħala l-poeta nazzjonali.

Dun Karm miet fit-13 ta’ Ottubru tal-1961.

Bħal kull sena f’Ottubru jiġi ċċelebrat Jum Dun Karm b’corteo li jibda mill-iskola primarja tal-Floriana sal-monument ta’ Dun Karm li jinsab fil-Furjana stess.  Huwa unur għalina bħala skola li ta’ kull sena jkun hemm numru sabiħ ta’ tfal li jieħdu sehem f’din l-attivita annwali, li din is-sena ġiet iċċelebrata fis-17 t’Ottubru 2014.
