[Written for the Sentinel]

Peace

On a marvel night, through a wonder-light,Love led me around the world.Nor afar nor near was a weapon of fear,For the banners of battle were furled,And all peoples sang till the ether rangA pæan of praise to GodThat sin had fled and sickness spedAnd death stalked no longer abroad.

Nor in any place was there left a raceThat smote with the knife for food,And children played all unafraidWith the trusting beasts of the wood.And the vision lives! It is Truth which givesThe promise of Life impearledWith purity, and of suretyLove will govern some day the world.

We'd love to hear from you!
