“War in Heaven” by Dr. Peter Henry Daley


Dr. Peter Daley has written approximately 280 poems since he began writing poetry six years ago.  Dr. Daley’s first work of poetry, “Planet Earth” and a subsequent poem, “Buttons” are also published in 900 Words.

War in Heaven

Did I fight in the days of yore

oft times tinged with gore

but noble for all that

It was ever thought to be

The best thing to die in battle

Blessed with Sword in hand

at the gate of heaven

ready to fight

in the army of God

heroes all ready to serve

in the war of heaven

Dr. Peter Henry Daley was born November 9, 1924 and spent his early life in Barnsley, Yorkshire, England. He qualified for the practice of medicine in 1949 and served his country in the Canal Zone in Egypt. He later spent his career in the National Health Service of England. He and his family immigrated to New Zealand and eventually settled in Australia.

Mr. Daley has written several books, including "Metaphysics and The New Age" (available on Amazon). He only began writing poetry, a subject he disliked in school, after finishing his first book and joining the local writers group.

Having retired from medical practice in 1989, he now enjoys life with his son in Australia. He continues to write and lecture on his favorite subjects, philosophy and metaphysics.
