1.
When You See Millions Of The Mouthless Dead
When you see millions of the mouthless dead
Across your dreams in pale battalions go,
Say not soft things as other men have said,
That you'll remember. For you need not so.
...
2.
To Germany
You are blind like us. Your hurt no man designed,
And no man claimed the conquest of your land.
But gropers both through fields of thought confined

Earth is bursting into song,
And the singers are the chaps
Who are going to die perhaps.

Poets have whitened at your high renown.
We stand among the many millions who
Do hourly wait to pass your pathway down.

All the hills and vales along
Earth is bursting into song,
And the singers are the chaps
Who are going to die perhaps.
...
9.
Two Sonnets

I

SAINTS have adored the lofty soul of you.
...
10.
Barbury Camp
We burrowed night and day with tools of lead,
Heaped the bank up and cast it in a ring
And hurled the earth above. And Caesar said,
"Why, it is excellent. I like the thing."
