    A Letter From the Trenches to a School Friend

    I have not brought my Odyssey
    With me here across the sea;
    But you'll remember, when I say
    How, when they went down Sparta way,
    To sandy Sparta, long ere dawn
    Horses were harnessed, rations drawn,
    Equipment polished sparkling bright,
    And breakfasts swallowed (as the white
    Of eastern heavens turned to gold) -
    The dogs barked, swift farewells were told.
    The sun springs up, the horses neigh,
    Crackles the whip thrice-then away!
    From sun-go-up to sun-go-down
    All day across the sandy down
    The gallant horses galloped, till
    The wind across the downs more chill
    Blew, the sun sank and all the road
    Was darkened, that it only showed
    Right at the end the town's red light
    And twilight glimmering into night.

    The horses never slackened till
    They reached the doorway and stood still.
    Then came the knock, the unlading; then
    The honey-sweet converse of men,
    The splendid bath, the change of dress,
    Then - oh the grandeur of their Mess,
    The henchmen, the prim stewardess!
    And oh the breaking of old ground,
    The tales, after the port went round!
    (The wondrous wiles of old Odysseus,
    Old Agamemnon and his misuse
    Of his command, and that young chit
    Paris - who didn't care a bit
    For Helen - only to annoy her
    He did it really, K.T.A.)
    But soon they led amidst the din
    The honey-sweet - in,
    Whose eyes were blind, whose soul had sight,
    Who knew the fame of men in fight -
    Bard of white hair and trembling foot,
    Who sang whatever God might put
    Into his heart.
    And there he sung,
    Those war-worn veterans among,
    Tales of great war and strong hearts wrung,
    Of clash of arms, of council's brawl,
    Of beauty that must early fall,
    Of battle hate and battle joy
    By the old windy walls of Troy.
    They felt that they were unreal then,
    Visions and shadow-forms, not men.
    But those the Bard did sing and say
    (Some were their comrades, some were they)
    Took shape and loomed and strengthened more
    Greatly than they had guessed of yore.
    And now the fight begins again,
    The old war-joy, the old war-pain.
    Sons of one school across the sea
    We have no fear to fight -

    And soon, oh soon, I do not doubt it,
    With the body or without it,
    We shall all come tumbling down
    To our old wrinkled red-capped town.
    Perhaps the road up llsley way,
    The old ridge-track, will be my way.
    High up among the sheep and sky,
    Look down on Wantage, passing by,
    And see the smoke from Swindon town;
    And then full left at Liddington,
    Where the four winds of heaven meet
    The earth-blest traveller to greet.
    And then my face is toward the south,
    There is a singing on my mouth
    Away to rightward I descry
    My Barbury ensconced in sky,
    Far underneath the Ogbourne twins,
    And at my feet the thyme and whins,
    The grasses with their little crowns
    Of gold, the lovely Aldbourne downs,
    And that old signpost (well I knew
    That crazy signpost, arms askew,
    Old mother of the four grass ways).
    And then my mouth is dumb with praise,
    For, past the wood and chalkpit tiny,
    A glimpse of Marlborough -!
    So I descend beneath the rail
    To warmth and welcome and wassail.

    This from the battered trenches - rough,
    Jingling and tedious enough.
    And so I sign myself to you:
    One, who some crooked pathways knew
    Round Bedwyn: who could scarcely leave
    The Downs on a December eve:
    Was at his happiest in shorts,
    And got - not many good reports!
    Small skill of rhyming in his hand -
    But you'll forgive - you'll understand. read more »

    The Schoolfellow

    Our game was his but yesteryear;
    We wished him back; we could not know
    The self-same hour we missed him here
    He led the line that broke the foe. read more »

    The New School

    The halls that were loud with the merry tread of young and careless feet
    Are still with a stillness that is too drear to seem like holiday,
    And never a gust of laughter breaks the calm of the dreaming street
    Or rises to shake the ivied walls and frighten the doves away. read more »

    Going Back to School

    The boat ploughed on. Now Alcatraz was past
    And all the grey waves flamed to red again
    At the dead sun's last glimmer. Far and vast
    The Sausalito lights burned suddenly read more »

    The Old Bark School

    It was built of bark and poles, and the floor was full of holes
    Where each leak in rainy weather made a pool;
    And the walls were mostly cracks lined with calico and sacks –
    There was little need for windows in the school. read more »

    Schoolroom On A Wet Afternoon

    The unrelated paragraphs of morning
    Are forgotten now; the severed heads of kings
    Rot by the misty Thames; the roses of York

    And now another autumn morning finds me
    With chalk dust on my sleeve and in my breath,

    Orphan School

    Full fifty merry maids I heard

    With spring-clear not a-ringing. read more »
