Mar 2011
A pin point
Of liquid silver sound
Trickles from

Open sky

Low under leaden feet
The cheated generation
Present and correct
Rank and file
Row upon row

Dark sockets gape
Where eyes once flared and flinched
Bled and oozed
Then locked their grateful lids
To extinguish Hell

For good

Beneath the sun's glower
I raise mine to
At the lark

(From notes written in Tyne Cot War Cemetery, Ypres, Belgium)
