Peace

(1966)

"Peace" is the third song of Siegmeister's The Face of War cycle, which sets five texts of Langston Hughes.

Peace
by Langston Hughes


We passed their graves:
The dead men there,
Winners or losers,
Did not care.


In the dark
They could not see
Who had gained
The victory.


--The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes, p. 341
