Julian Grenfell quotes- 4 of
The thundering line of battle stands,
And in the air Death moans and sings:
Through joy and blindness he shall know,
Not caring much to know, that still
Nor lead nor steel shall reach him,
And he is dead who will not fight;
And who dies fighting has increase.
The horses show him nobler powers;
O patient eyes, courageous hearts!
