War be with Us always,
Crusades need not be.
Fighting is a profession
And should not be,
A damnable devotion.
A strange Duck I be,
Fearing the killing with passion;
Maybe only a cold-hearted Soul.

yes, only cold hearted souls. powerful write lawrence.


What language does war speak, that whips
dew-moistened jasmines to their fall?

What filaments spin from its tongue, that weaves
a dangerous brocade of diplomatic shawls?

Why are the birds so suddenly quiet?
Were they swallowed in their blue?
by hunting night cats over the roofed tiles
moving along earth's folds
with tempting curvatures,


they spill intoxicating nocturnal perfume
and mother of pearl, at the wings of sleeping sparrows.

I have nothing but my children and my words, yet I sit
by the edge of this fading medley of songs
my light, a mirror away from my shadow.

O, to soar behind the moonlight! get lost...

it's a sad, sad, world.
