    Thomas, I do believe you have great potential! The way you set a picture in the audience's mind; it is absolutely exquisite.

    When I first read his poem A Soldiers Dream I thought it was about WW1, but then realised the book it was in was published in 1834. But it could be ANY war.

6 When the drum beat at dead of night,
7 Commanding fires of death to light
8 The darkness of her scenery.
