"It Was Wrong To Do This," Said The Angel Poem by Stephen Crane

"It Was Wrong To Do This," Said The Angel

Rating: 2.7


"It was wrong to do this," said the angel.
"You should live like a flower,
Holding malice like a puppy,
Waging war like a lambkin."

"Not so," quoth the man
Who had no fear of spirits;
"It is only wrong for angels
Who can live like the flowers,
Holding malice like the puppies,
Waging war like the lambkins."
