Anthem for Doomed Youth
Writers and Literature of The Great War, 1914-1918
(To The Memory of Rupert Brooke)
Wilfrid Wilson Gibson (1878-1962)
I do not understand.
I only know
That as he turned to go
And waved his hand
In his young eyes a sudden glory shone:
And I was dazzled by a sunset glow,
And he was gone.
