Once a man clambering to the housetops

by
 Once a man clambering to the housetops
Appealed to the heavens.
With strong voice he called to the deaf spheres; A warrior's shout he raised to the suns.
Lo, at last, there was a dot on the clouds, And -- at last and at last -- -- God -- the sky was filled with armies.
