There are always memories for solace…
Blind sacrament even time fears to kill.
Words leave the bitter taste of raw-sweet days
But colours clot crumpled wounds, too sore to fill.

And yet – divine the darkness of first love!
Alms of careless candour clutched home to heart,
Nuances lost to prejudiced eyes that strove
To overlook signals, reading truth in art.

Four years – so short it sounds to the ear…
No, stranger, ask not how many I thought ;
You, honey-happy in budding bliss, dare not hear
The terrible tears of lost wars I have fought.
