  • All Quiet in Mars

    From The Sun, October 18, 1914.

    Things quiet seem among the stars,
        And that is quite a boon.
    There is no turbulence on Mars,
        No warfare on the moon.

    The other planets seem benign
        As peacefully they glow.
    On none of them we see a sign
        Of violence or woe.

    While this war is the biggest fight
        That ever time brought forth,
    It looks at least as if we might
        Confine it to the earth.
