    The Cenotaph

    Not yet will those measureless fields be green again
    Where only yesterday the wild sweet blood of wonderful youth was shed;
    There is a grave whose earth must hold too long, too deep a stain,
    Though for ever over it we may speak as proudly as we may tread.
    But here, where the watchers by lonely hearths from the thrust of an inward sword have more slowly bled,
    We shall build the Cenotaph: Victory, winged, with Peace, winged too, at the column’s head.
    And over the stairway, at the foot—oh! here, leave desolate, passionate hands to spread
    Violets, roses, and laurel, with the small, sweet, tinkling country things
    Speaking so wistfully of other Springs,
    From the little gardens of little places where son or sweetheart was born and bred.
    In splendid sleep, with a thousand brothers
    To lovers—to mothers
    Here, too, lies he:
    Under the purple, the green, the red,
    It is all young life: it must break some women's hearts to see
    Such a brave, gay coverlet to such a bed!
    Only, when all is done and said,
    God is not mocked and neither are the dead
    For this will stand in our Marketplace—
    Who’ll sell, who’ll buy
    (Will you or I
    Lie each to each with the better grace)?
    While looking into every busy whore's and huckster's face
    As they drive their bargains, is the Face
    Of God: and some young, piteous, murdered face. read more »

    An Irish Airman Forsees His Death

    I KNOW that I shall meet my fate

    The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner

    From my mother's sleep I fell into the State,
    And I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze.
    Six miles from earth, loosed from its dream of life,
    I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters. read more »

    Adlestrop

    Yes, I remember Adlestrop --
    The name, because one afternoon
    Of heat the express-train drew up there
    Unwontedly. It was late June. read more »

    To Germany

    You are blind like us. Your hurt no man designed,
    And no man claimed the conquest of your land.
    But gropers both through fields of thought confined
    We stumble and we do not understand. read more »

    June, 1915

    Who thinks of June's first rose today?
    Only some child, perhaps, with shining eyes and
    rough bright hair will reach it down.
    In a green sunny lane, to us almost as far away read more »
