Peace On Earth

Posted on Updated on

he Archer is wake!
The Swan is flying!
Gold against blue
An Arrow is lying.
There is hunting in heaven–
Sleep safe till tomorrow.

The Bears are abroad!
The Eagle is screaming!
Gold against blue
Their eyes are gleaming!
Sleep!
Sleep safe till tomorrow.

The Sisters lie
With their arms intertwining;
Gold against blue
Their hair is shining!
The Serpent writhes!
Orion is listening!
Gold against blue
His sword is glistening!
Sleep!
There is hunting in heaven–
Sleep safe till tomorrow.

 

– William Carlos Williams
