Snagged from petzipellepingo When you see this post your favorite poem!
I am not great at remembering poetry, and love a lot of the War Poetry that was written during the first world war. I have posted some of the more well-known in the past, so here is one written by Vera Britten, when her fiance was killed in action -
PERHAPS - TO R.A.L.
Perhaps some day the sun will shine again,
And I shall see that still the skies are blue,
And feel once more I do not live in vain,
Although bereft of You.
Perhaps the golden meadows at my feet
Will make the sunny hours of spring seem gay,
And I shall find the white May-blossoms sweet,
Though You have passed away.
Perhaps the summer woods will shimmer bright,
And crimson roses once again be fair,
And autumn harvest fields a rich delight,
Although You are not there.
But though kind Time may many joys renew,
There is one greatest joy I shall not know
Again, because my heart for loss of You
Was broken, long ago.
