Man in a Golden Helmet-Rembrandt

Man in a Golden Helmet – Rembrandt van Rijn

************

Wanderlust had led me far

Following that fated star

Leading to the gates of war

That Satan’s own had left ajar

 ***

And now I see on looking back

With wearied eyes and burdened back

A tired old man with nothing left

With mourning soul and heart bereft

*******

How can this world not be ready for the

Quiet happiness and calm of peace?
