Remembrance Day


  1. What a great find. In it's way, that's a darker poem than Dulce et decorum est. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. I'm happy to do so. It seems we don't really celebrate our own war poets. Everything seems to begin and end with John McCrae - and even then we don't look beyond 'In Flanders Fields'. I look to Frank Prewett, the finest of the lot, who was celebrated by many English poets, including Robert Graves (editor of his collected poems), yet it wasn't until 1987 that his first and only Canadian collection was published.
