This Is The World Of Poetry

This is the world of Poetry:

Behold! The sky is livid purple

And gold as in a sacred vision:

Behold! Bolts of shattering thunder,

Psalms of justice, instant breakings

Of electric-white lightning splitting night

With uprisings of mirth, end to War,

Love and laughter in jubilation!
