65. The Return
 
By John Freeman
 
 
I HEARD the rumbling guns. I saw the smoke,
  The unintelligible shock of hosts that still,
Far off, unseeing, strove and strove again;
  And Beauty flying naked down the hill
 
From morn to eve: and the stern night cried Peace!        5
  And shut the strife in darkness: all was still,
Then slowly crept a triumph on the dark—
  And I heard Beauty singing up the hill.
