    Alec was my father-in-Law's first cousin.

    He wrote at least 85 poems, and other works. The poems on here are NOT in chronological order. No.26 was his last - he was killed the following day, aged 21

    All his works (those known to me) are at http: //www.spanglefish.com/AlecDeCandole

And If A Bullet

And if a bullet in the midst of strife
Should still the pulse of this unquiet life
Twere well: be death an everlasting rest,
I oft could yearn for it, by cares opprest ;
And be 't a night that brings another day,
I still could go rejoicing on my way,
Desiring in no phantom heav'n to dwell.
Nor scared with terror of any phantom hell.
But gazing now I find not death a curse
