Round Shapes

Two armies are facing each other
neither yields

Each soldier on one side
grips a crescent moon
the others have nothing
nowhere to flee

Yet there are so many of them
their shadows are blending

Above them the sun’s bee-hive
sings hymns to the summer
(The earth burns skyward
fetch the well in your jugs)

Two armies are battling
the smaller one is victorious
