Poem by Stephen Crane


* * *


Once a man clambering to the housetops
Appealed to the heavens.
With strong voice he called to the deaf spheres;
A warriorТs shout he raised to the suns.
Lo, at last, there was a dot on the clouds,
And -- at last and at last --
-- God -- the sky was filled with armies.



Stephen Crane
