I Hate War

I have seen war. I have seen war on land and sea. I have seen blood running  from the wounded. I have seen the dead in the mud. I have seen cities destroyed. I have seen children starving. I have seen the agony of mothers and wives. I hate war.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Ein Gedanke zu „I Hate War“

  1. Not forever shall the Lord
    of the red hail

    Not forever shall the Lord of the red hail
    Hold in his velvet hand the can of blood;
    He shall be wise an let this brimstone spill.
    Free from their Burning nests the arrows brood.
    And sweet shall fall contagion from this side,
    And loud his anger stamp upon the hill.

    As fire falls, two hemispheres divide,
    Shall drown the boys of battle in their swill,
    The stock and steel that bayonet from the mud,
    The fields yet undivided behind the skull.
    Both mind and matter at the scalding word
    Shall fall away, and leave one singing shell.

    A hole in space shall keep the shape of thought,
    The lines of earth, the curving of the heart,
    And from this darkness spin the golden soul.
    Intangible my word shall come to naught,
    The solid world shall wither in the heat,
    How soon, how soon, O lord of the red hail!

    Dylan Thomas
