28 July 1914 - 11 November 1918


Our movements were like those of a madman,
hurling his hands at the skies
Swooping arabesques in the blue light,
buzzing like angry fruit flies

~

The church bells chimed in the silence
of the delicate Ardenne day
The meadows filled with sunbeams
and birdsong far away

~

The pounding was incessant,
explosions of mud in the air
Sucking puddles pulled us to hell
in a chaos of despair

~

The men chuckled over a card school,
black faces, shining white teeth
Devouring lumps of bread and cheese
in a few moments of relief

~

In an instant dust filled the air,
all choking breathing it in
The ceiling comes down, walls collapsing,
men dying in the din

~

Long lines of silent men walk
to a horizon bruised and black
Just a shuffling sound in the wind
and no one looking back

~

A ship like some monstrous wall,
hooting like a giant so sad
Everyone swept up in its sound,
it seemed the whole world had gone mad

~

Children's faces whipping round,
hands stretched out for food
Black faces, torn clothes, sad eyes,
an animal-human brood

~

The fog has now settled in,
thick, grey and wet
Splashes of mute yellow flare within
inside a shell of regret

~

A tram shuttles, clacking along
in this smoky, noisy town
It seems so strange to hear a laugh,
inside... the guns still pound.
