|Dearest Doris, one can say no more than, thank you for your kindness to an ex-soldier!
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 (1914).
Kindest Regards and a picture of the Menin Gate (mine), where no Soldiers do but have a grave, just a name on a wall. There are many names that are missing here, for it ran out of space after nearly 40,000 names, that are known to be of of the missing soldiers. The rest are missing in Flanders fields where poppies grow, crosses and crosses row upon row!
