Last Line: And evergreen unveil its golden gorse.
Subject(s): Peace


Eureka, and the world will keep its course,
And candles burn through midnight on the sills
Of human souls, and horns be trumpeted hoarse,
And bold bells hang the echo on the hills --
The hermit, listen to his blood behave
The channels of his flesh, and rising, leave
The very special silence of his cave,
Welcoming this new peace that men achieve.

The last harsh drum will rumble, and the last
Taps blow for the warrior shovelled home;
The levelled cities rise, and wrens fly past
After looting the newly blossoming loam.
Now earth may follow its familiar course,
And evergreen unveil its golden gorse.
