WAR VERSE (1914), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: O two-penny poets, be still--
Last Line: From leman and brialmont.
Subject(s): World War I; First World War

O two-penny poets, be still! --
For you have nine years out of every ten
To go gunning for glory --
with pop-guns;
Be still, give the soldiers their turn,
And do not be trying to scrape your two-penny glory
From the ruins of Louvain,
And from the smouldering Liege,
From Leman and Brialmont.
