William Tennant: Ode to Peace

William Tennant
From Anster Fair

While some of Troy and pettish heroes sing,
And some of Rome and chiefs of pious fame,
And some of men that thought it harmless thing
To smite off heads in Mars’s bloody game,
And some of Eden’s garden gay with spring,
And Hell’s dominions terrible to name,
I sing a theme far livelier, happier, gladder…
