    Are these all by Siegfried Sassoon?

    The correct way for educated people to request that the audio be made inoperative is to write: Please can someone on this site please de-activate the audio. Thank you for your attention to this matter. I can see absolutely NO reason to be vulgar. And, incidentally, you can always turn OFF the sound at YOUR end! I personally have yet to hear the audio!

    To Marilyn: The poem that contains that line is called Memory.

    Could anyone help me with the title of the poem which contains the line”And I am rich in all that I have lost”?

Best Poem of Siegfried Sassoon

Suicide In The Trenches

I knew a simple soldier boy
Who grinned at life in empty joy,
Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
And whistled early with the lark.

In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
He put a bullet through his brain.
No one spoke of him again.

You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you'll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.

Read the full of Suicide In The Trenches

The General

‘Good-morning; good-morning!’ the General said
When we met him last week on our way to the line.
Now the soldiers he smiled at are most of ’em dead,
And we’re cursing his staff for incompetent swine.
‘He’s a cheery old card,’ grunted Harry to Jack
As they slogged up to Arras with rifle and pack.

. . . .
But he did for them both by his plan of attack.
