Grace Hazard Conkling Poems

The Nightingale Of Flanders

THE nightingales of Flanders,
They had not gone to war;
A soldier heard them singing

After Sunset

I have an understanding with the hills
At evening when the slanted radiance fills
Their hollows, and the great winds let them be,
And they are quiet and look down at me.

To fill thirty thick volumes;
There are as many songs about roses
As there are roses in the world

Francis Ledwidge

(Killed in action July 31, 1917)

Nevermore singing
Will you go now,
