Eisenhower

We bow to fear.

Fear fearfully

Bowed and bowed

To Eisenhower.

We think of war;

War thought of Eisenhower —

Victory too.


Two infinite extremes:

War and Peace —

War the destroyer

Of blooming world,

Peace the devourer

Of roaring War.


Eisenhower,

The Thunder

Of the Omnipotent,

Divinely arranged

For their dinner.

A dinner unprecedented,

And inimitable, too.


Both the Princes came in.

Two hearts became one

In a golden embrace.

They grew into all delight.


Dinner over,

War sat in absolute relief

At the feet of Eisenhower.

Peace commenced his dance,

A perfect stranger

To the dark hush of extinction — Night.


God smiled.

In words of dynamic Silence He spoke:

“The Man of the Hour.”
