           They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them or the years condemn.
           At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.

                                                           The Soldier
                                                     If I should die, think only this of me,
                                                    That there's some corner of a foreign field

                                          That is forever England. There shall be
                                                     In that rich earth a richer dust concealed,
                                                     A dust where England bore, shaped made aware,
                                                     Gave once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam.
                                                     A body of Engl;and's, breathing english air,
                                                     Washed by rivers, blest by suns of home.
 
                                                     And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
                                                     A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
                                                     Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given,
                                                     Her sights and sounds; dream happy as her day,
                                                     And laughter, learnt of friends, and gentleness,
                                                     In hearts at peace under an English heaven.
                                       
                                                                                                                         Rupert Brooke 1915
