The soldier – Poetry
If i should die , think only this of me ; That there’s some corner of a foreigen field That is for ever England .There shall be In that rich earth a richer .There shall be In that rich earth a richer dust concealed; A dust whom England bore, shaped , made aware Gave once ,her flowers to love ,her ways to roam, A body of England’s breathing English air , Washed by the rivers , blest by suns of home. And think , this heart ,all evil shed away, A pulse in the eternal mind , no less Gives ,somewhere back the thoughts by England given; Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day; And laughter ,learnt of friends; and gentless, in hearts at peace ,under an English heaven.

There is a house now far away where once I recevied love .That woman died.

How often i think of going There ,to peer through blind eyes of windows or just listen to the frozen air, Or in wind despair ,pick an armful of Darkness to bring it here to lie Behind my bedroom’s door like a brooding Dog… you cannot believe ,darling can you ,that i lived in such a house and Was proud ,and loved… i who have lost My way and beg now at strangers’ doors to Receive love ,at least in small change?
