Edmund Blunden quotes- 5 of
On the green they watched their sons
Playing till too dark to see,
Like the bee that now is blown,
Honey-heavy on my hand,
I'm in clover now, nor know
Who made honey long ago.
I have seen a green country, useful to the race,
Knocked silly with guns and mines, its villages vanished,
But not the tallest there, 'tis said,
Could fathom to this pond's black bed.
