Silence over the battlefield

Silence over the battlefield

"The helmet now a hive for bees becomes,
And hilts of swords may serve for spiders' looms;
Sharp pikes may make
Teeth for a rake;
And the keen blade, th'arch enemy of life,
Shall be degraded to a pruning knife."

(R. Knevet in The helmet now a hive ...)
Chertal (B)
