In Memoriam
(Easter, 1915)

The flowers left thick at nightfall in the wood
This Eastertide call into mind the men,
Now far from home, who, with their sweethearts, should
Have gathered them and will do never again.


Edward Thomas
(3 March 1878 – 9 April 1917)

Happy birthday to my mother,
and in memory of Aunt Pauline;
sisters, but not twins, both born on St. Valentine’s Day.
