    Thank you for publishing poems of Elizabeth Daryush. I found one of her poems by chance in our copy of The Oxford Book of CHRISTIAN VERSE. The title of the poem is 'How on solemn fields of space...'

    It's a fine poem, once I scramble the words around to see them from the beginning. I think the scrambling helps get the meaning of the poem. Atter the scrambling, though, I replace them to where I found them. Undisturbed, I hope.

    Best regards, Maggie Hurll

Flanders Fields

Here the scanted daisy glows
Glorious as the carmined rose;
Here the hill-top's verdure mean
Fair is with unfading green;
Here, where sorrow still must tread,
All her graves are garlanded.

And still, O glad passer-by
Of the fields of agony,

[Hata Bildir]
