War of the worlds


worlds
worlds
worlds
so many worlds
and in each world
yet so many worlds
and in each world
war..war...war
down to the tiniest creation
each foreign world
floats and sinks in its own world
a world of nature
a world of war
ever ready to
guard us against
foreign worlds
world
world
world
yet each to his own world
at least for now

    war of the worlds is a beautiful poem and it could be used for teaching to the new generation students which have social relevance and it has nicely said by the poet. (Report) Reply

    To Mr. Chunghoo,
    I am introducing your poem War of the Worlds to my 8th grade English class. Students often ask if the poet really means the larger meanings we get from poetry. Would you give me a message for my class. I am presenting it this Friday Feb.22.

    I would appreciate anyone else's comment about the poem as well. Thank you,

    I like it. I do think there´s peace in the observation of things and even in the sorriness of the statement of fact. Just how far apart are our worlds? (Report) Reply
