    That banner in the sky;

    When you draw near to a town to fight against it, offer it terms of peace.

    Such is the role of poetry. It unveils, in the strict sense of the word. It lays bare, under a light which shakes off torpor, the surprising things which surround us and which our senses record mechanically.
