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.
