Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,

    This poem is quite alright,
    It gives me chills through the night,
    With blanket on blanket I just might,
    Sleep very well with the stars in my sight.

    A very strong antiwar poem, which I like. the smug, jingoistic crowds know nothing
    of the brutal reality of war, which made a young soldier commit suicide.
    'Pray you'll never know/ The where youth and laughter go'. Tragic.
