Peace on Earth
By William Carlos Williams
 
THE ARCHER is wake!
The Swan is flying!
Gold against blue
An Arrow is lying.
There is hunting in heaven—        5
Sleep safe till tomorrow.
 
The Bears are abroad!
The Eagle is screaming!
Gold against blue
Their eyes are gleaming!        10
Sleep!
Sleep safe till tomorrow.
 
The Sisters lie
With their arms intertwining;
Gold against blue        15
Their hair is shining!
The Serpent writhes!
Orion is listening!
 
Gold against blue
His sword is glistening!        20
Sleep!
There is hunting in heaven—
Sleep safe till tomorrow.
