Mary Putnam Gilmore
Sweet Peace is Here

Sweet Peace is here,
And some have lifted up their eyes
And met her gentle gaze.
But others, looking forward, say:
In future ages she may come;
We know not when. Far hence it is.
Still more, with downward glance, affirm;
She will not come. The hearts of men,
Their stout and warlike hearts,
Are not abode for such as she.
But they, whose eyes have seen?
They know that Peace is here,
And that the hearts of men
Are her abode by right Divine.
And so they calmly wait
Until the vision come to all.
