Poems in English

Once a man clambering to the housetops

Once a man clambering to the housetops

Once a man clambering to the housetops
Appealed to the heavens.
With strong voice he called to the deaf spheres;
A warrior’s 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.
