In Memoriam - Poem by Edward Thomas

The flowers left thick at nightfall in the wood
This Eastertide call into mind the men,
Now far from home, who, with their sweethearts, should
Have gathered them and will do never again.

    Moving and unforgettable. Thomas seemed to know that these men would not be returning. (Report) Reply
