Submit your work, meet writers and drop the ads. Vicki Kralapp Aug Love is a war; a battlefield looking for something real in this world strewn with shattered dreams. Bombs and grenades blow holes in innocent victims and leave them to their pain and despair. I wait for my knight on horseback to spare me. I can hear the heavy hoofs and breathing of horses as my army comes to stay the enemy of distrust.

My heart skips a beat as I can almost feel salvation. Holding my breath I wait for that which holds my heart captive, to be slain. Then you are here,along with hope, joy, and freedom, your faithful companions, to fill my heart and replace the blood that has been spilt, with trust once again.

Here, love is the far proxy of look - She is dying a distance - Yours travels from brook to sky To the heaven wanderings of death in my blood, The black smoke-congested veins possessed By the baffled realms of battlefield By the horrors of the mundane From this old mouth, emptied of kisses.

And then it must have been A very fine experience for you! Reconciliation Siegfried Sassoon. Men fought like brutes; and hideous things were done, And you have nourished hatred harsh and blind. Nor law, nor duty bade me fight, Nor public men, nor cheering crowds,. A lonely impulse of delight Drove to this tumult in the clouds; I balanced all, brought all to mind, The years to come seemed waste of breath, A waste of breath the years behind In balance with this life, this death. I sat among the boughs of the fallen elm That strewed an angle of the fallow, and Watched the plough narrowing a yellow square Of charlock.

Every time the horses turned Instead of treading me down, the ploughman leaned Upon the handles to say or ask a word, About the weather, next about the war. Reflecting the voices of poets, soldiers, the families they left behind and their comrades who would never return, The Penguin Book of First World War Poetry, previously published as In Flanders Fields , is edited with an introduction by George Walter in Penguin Classics. Unrivalled for its range and intensity, the poetry of the First World War continues to have a powerful effect on readers.

This anthology reflects the diverse experience of those who lived through the war - bringing together the words of poets, soldiers and civilians affected by the conflict. Including famous verses from Rupert Brooke, Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen; pieces by less well-known writers such as Gilbert Frankau and Osbert Sitwell; works by women describing the emotions of those at home; and the anonymous lyrics of soldiers' songs, The Penguin Book of First World War Poetry offers a blend of voices that is both unique and profoundly moving.

This collection has been arranged thematically, moving through the war's different stages from conscription through to its aftermath, to offer the reader a variety of perspectives on the same common experiences. George Walter's introduction discusses the role and scope of First World War poetry anthologies, and how the canon has changed over the years.

This edition also contains notes and biographies. His research interests are 20th-century literature; madness and creativity; constructions of Englishness; the cultural impact of the First World War.
