Here you will find the Poem Pax Paganica of poet Louise Imogen Guiney

Pax Paganica

GOOD oars, for Arnold?s sake,
By Laleham lightly bound,
And near the bank, O soft,
Darling swan!
Let not the o?erweary wake 
Anew from natal ground,
But where he slumbered oft,
Slumber on.

Be less than boat or bird,
The pensive stream along; 
No murmur make, nor gleam,
At his side.
Where was it he had heard
Of warfare and of wrong??
Not there, in any dream 
Since he died.
