battle at the hottest

all stars that bright doth beam
doth not always a-right accord
that moderate terminal destiny;

routes there be craft-fill'd & thorny
but shaft-fill'd with the happy soft ending
clownish & whimsical as ‘tis doomful;

o moderation oft maketh abortive
a warfare’s line of battle at the hottest
angle that would take its foe’s roots.

    I like reading your thoughts on the significance of moderation, Canny. I'm glad I've never had to fight in a war for I can't bear to see violence. Thought-provoking poem. Thanks for your comments, Carolyn
