Land of the Living: Poetry of Peace (Birthday Books Vol 13 of 41)

The title of this blank book comes from the poem CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTOR by Edna St. Vincent Millay (see excerpt below). This book should be filled with your favorite anti-war poem, quotation, slogan, folk song. Illustrate them if you wish. Feel free to include original poetry, prose and personal experiences of pro-peace activism. Use as much space as you like, it’s a big book.

“I shall die, but that is all that I shall do for Death;

I am not on his pay-roll.

I will not tell him the whereabout of my friends

nor of my enemies either.

Though he promise me much,

I will not map him the route to any man’s door.

Am I a spy in the land of the living,

that I should deliver men to Death?”

When the pages of this journal are filled, please return it to bookmooch user: zenfish. Thank you.

RE: Birthday Books vol 1-41. I was very excited to read about the bookmooch journal project as I usually celebrate my birthday with art/performance art madness related to the number in question. In August I will be a delightful 41 years wild. I have purchased 41 blank journals and am giving each individual themes. When all the wayward art has winged its way home to me, I look forward to a local celebration to share and enjoy these books with friends.
