    can anyone help as I am sure Siegfried Sassoon wrote a poem about a victoiran train starting, The passengers stand in pools of wintry light, offering themselves to morn's long slanting shadows. The train steams in volleying
    resplendent clouds of sun blown vapour.

    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.

  • Marilyn (11/28/2017 6:43:00 AM)

    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

I Stood With The Dead

I Stood with the Dead, so forsaken and still:
When dawn was grey I stood with the Dead.
And my slow heart said, 'You must kill, you must kill:
'Soldier, soldier, morning is red'.

On the shapes of the slain in their crumpled disgrace
I stared for a while through the thin cold rain...
'O lad that I loved, there is rain on your face,
'And your eyes are blurred and sick like the plain.'
