Best Poem of Bob Oldfield

Christmas 1916

In the bleak midwinter frosty wind made moan
As did those who were injured and dying
Slumped unceremoniously in mud-filled trenches
Craving for the warmth of a home-fire burning
But there was none

Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone
And fingers, numb of feeling like brittle twigs
Twisted at the end of slowly rotting branches.
Delicate precision lost
Unable to caress or soothe
Now locked and cramped around a trigger

Snow had fallen, snow on snow
A masquerade of beauty.
A whitewashed sepulchre encapsulating bodies
In burial robes which ...

Read the full of Christmas 1916

I Think, Therefore...

Cover yourself with blankets
Of reasoned argument
If you want

Bury yourself under mounds
Of deep philosophies
If you like

Extinguish the light at
The end of the tunnel
If you dare

But then how could you hope
To find anything in
The darkness?
