The following poem was written by the artist as an accompaniment to The Songs of War: "The Songs of War," 2020 by Robert Lostutter "The human race goes off to war / with dancing hands and singing feet / and they return / if they come back at all / slashed and torn in mind and bone / Let then / the soft and quiet blanket of peace / pull itself over everything / Let then / each day by day / show and spread / its glorious and healing light".
Part of a collection of 19 drawings for Robert Lostutter's "The Songs of War" (2021.28:1-19).
