Francis William Bourdillon

(22 March 1852 – 13 January 1921 / Runcorn, Cheshire)

Here and There


'HERE'

Soft benediction of September sun;
Voices of children, laughing as they run;
Green English lawns, bright flowers and butterflies;
And over all the blue embracing skies.

'THERE'

Tumult and roaring of the incessant gun;
Dead men and dying, trenches lost and won;
Blood, mud, and havoc, bugles, shoutings, cries;
And over all the blue embracing skies.
