  3. 3. The Soldier - Brooke If I should die, think only this of me: That theres some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England.

  5. 5. Glory Of Women - Sassoon You love us when were heroes, home on leave, Or wounded in a mentionable place.

  7. 7. Dulce Et Decorum Est - Owen If in some smothering dreams, you too could pace Behind the wagon that we flung him in, And watch the white eyes writhing in his face, His hanging face, like a devils sick of sin, If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs Bitter as the cud Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues, My friend, you would not tell with such high zest To children ardent for some desperate glory, The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est Pro patria mori.

  8. 8. August 1914 - Rosenberg What in our lives is burnt In the fire of this? The heart’s dear granary? The much we shall miss? Three lives hath one life – Iron, honey, gold. The gold, the honey gone – Left is the hard and cold. Iron are our lives Molten right through our youth. A burnt space through ripe fields A fair mouth’s broken tooth.
