The Trenches

They held with horrid hell their lines
Til shells dispelled their noxious fumes
Then through the labyrinth there fell
A myriad to Earth's gray womb

A thousand summers ere that day
Those fruitful fields were green and bloom
What once were luscious, lovely plains
Are now a wasteland and a tomb

[Hata Bildir]
