Next morning,
A crowd gathered on the Common,
Hypnotized by the unscrewing of the cylinder.
Two feet of shining screw projected when,
The lid fell off!

Two luminous disc-like eyes
Appeared above the rim.
A huge,
Rounded bulk,
Larger than a bear,
Rose up slowly,
Glistening like wet leather.
Its lipless mouth quivered and slavered -
And snake-like tentacles writhed
As the clumsy body heaved
And pulsated.

A few young men
Crept closer to the pit.
A tall funnel rose,
Then an invisible ray of heat
Leapt from man to man
And there was a bright glare,
As each was instantly turned to fire.
Every tree and bush
Became a mass of flames
At the touch of this savage,
Unearthly Heat Ray.

People clawed their way off the Common,
And I ran too.
I felt I was being toyed with,
That when I was on the very verge of safety,
This mysterious death would leap
After me and strike me down.
At last I reached Maybury Hill
And in the dim coolness of my home
I wrote an account for my newspaper
Before I sank into a restless,
Haunted sleep.

I awoke to alien sounds
Of hammering from the pit,
And hurried to the railway station
To buy the paper.

Around me,
The daily routine of life -
Sleeping -
Was continuing serenely
As it had for countless years.

On Horsell Common,
The Martians continued hammering
And stirring,
At work upon the machines they were making.
Now and again a light,
Like the beam of a warship's searchlight,
Swept the Common -
And the Heat Ray
Was ready to follow.

In the afternoon,
A company of soldiers
Came through
And deployed along the edge of the Common,
To form a cordon.

That evening,
There was a violent crash
And I realized with horror
That my home was now within range
Of the Martian's Heat Ray.

At dawn,
A falling star
With a trail of green mist
Landed with a flash
Like summer lightning.

This was the second cylinder.
