1914 V: The Soldier
by Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,

Please Mrs Butler
by Allan Ahlberg

Please Mrs Butler
This boy Derek Drew
Keeps copying my work, Miss.
What shall I do?

Go and sit in the hall, dear.

Do whatever you think.

Hymn To Pan
by Aleister Crowley

Thrill with lissome lust of the light,
O man ! My man !
Come careering out of the night
Of Pan ! Io Pan .
Io Pan ! Io Pan ! Come over the sea
From Sicily and from Arcady !
Roaming as Bacchus, with fauns and pards
And nymphs and styrs for thy guards,
On a milk-white ass, come over the sea
To me, to me,

by Wilfred Owen

I

Happy are men who yet before they are killed
Can let their veins run cold.
Whom no compassion fleers
Or makes their feet
Sore on the alleys cobbled with their brothers.
The front line withers,
But they are troops who fade, not flowers
For poets' tearful fooling:

by Li-Young Lee

Because this graveyard is a hill,
I must climb up to see my dead,
stopping once midway to rest
beside this tree.

It was here, between the anticipation
of exhaustion, and exhaustion,
between vale and peak,
my father came down to me

in the silence of summer
warm winds are blowing

Lost in Greenery
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was lost in exotic lush greenery,
And quite lost in my deep thoughts,
Yet aware of the blossoming scenery,
Of riverbank stones slimy with moss.

I was lost in woods, nature's heart,
Gone green out of civilized society,
Off to myself, amidst natural arts,
Along an obscure pathway of quietly.

My Clematis
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

a trellis cascade
creeping beauty on the fence
in pink white or red

my purple climber
been around, going somewhere
new as morning dew

pretty whites and blues
happy on my garden wall
