Rookie (1976 / Republic of South Sudan)

The Red Ring around the Sun


When the sun appears in morning
With red ring around it
Half red and half yellow
Is sign of coming up war?

The red ring is sign of blood
To be shed in battle
The half red is attacking side
The half yellow is defending side

In such morning
The war drum is beaten
Every man sharpens his spear
And be on maximum alert in Jonglei

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
