Footnotes

  • Down in the hollow there's the whole Brigade
    Camped in four groups: through twilight falling slow
    I hear a sound of mouth-organs, ill-played,
    And murmur of voices, gruff, confused, and low.
    Crouched among thistle-tufts I've watched the glow
    Of a blurred orange sunset flare and fade;
    And I'm content. To-morrow we must go
    To take some cursèd Wood ... O world God made!

    'At Carnoy', 1916 by Siegfried Sassoon.
