George Edward Woodberry: American I am; would wars were done!


Anti-war essays, poems, short stories and literary excerpts

American writers on peace and against war


George Edward Woodberry
From At Gibraltar

Two swords there are: one naked, apt to smite,
Thy blade of war; and, battle-storied, one
Rejoices in the sheath, and hides from light.
American I am; would wars were done!
Now westward, look, my country bids good night, –
Peace to the world, from ports without a gun!

    Yes you are so right, we need for eternal peace around the world . we should in fact oppose any geopolitical conflicts prevailing in the world by trying to cease them as soon as possible. The coordination of actions in this context is sine qua non condition between all the races that God procreated.
    Thank you so much Sir for your important approach .
