Angel prays for peace

The Peace Angel

Angel of Peace, the hounds of war,

Unleashed, are all abroad,

And war’s foul trade again is made

Man’s leading aim in life.

Blood dyes the billow and the sod;

The very winds are rife

With tales of slaughter. Angel, pray,

What can we do or think or say

In times like these?

‘Child, think of God!’

‘Before this little speck in space

Called Earth with light was shod,

Great chains and tiers of splendid spheres

Were fashioned by His hand.

Be thine the part to love and laud,

Nor seek to understand.

Go lift thine eyes from death-charged guns

To one who made a billion suns;

And trust and wait.

Child, dwell on God!’

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
