RUPERT BROOKE’S POEM – 100th ANNIVERSARY of BATTLE OF LOOS

 

 

TODAY’S FAYRE – Friday, 25th September 2015

 

“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,

Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.

 

And think, this heart, all evil shed away,

A pulse in the eternal mind, no less

Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;

Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;

And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,

In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.”

 

 

Rupert Brooke – poet & soldier – 1887-1915
