“Cease Fire.”



                Over the broken dead,
                        Over the trenches and wire,
                Bugles of God rang out—
                                                 “Cease Fire”.

                Woe to those nations of men

5
                        Who, in their heat or desire,
                Break that stern order of God—
                                                 “Cease Fire”. [Page 47]
