    she is a good poet because she uses rhetorical questions and direct address which is a keen thing to do because it will grab there attenion (Who's For The Game?)

The Knitting Song

SOLDIER lad, on the sodden ground,
Sailor lad on the seas,
Can't you hear a little clicketty sound
Stealing across on the breeze?
It's the knitting-needles singing their song
As they twine the khaki or blue,
Thousands and thousands and thousands strong,
Tommy and Jack, for you.
