Make Bright The Arrows

Make Bright The Arrows

Make bright the arrows
Gather the shields:
Conquest narrows
The peaceful fields.

Stock well the quiver
With arrows bright:
The bowman feared
Need never fight.

Make bright the arrows,
O peaceful and wise!
Gather the shields
Against surprise.



Poem Make Bright The Arrows - Edna St Vincent Millay
