First Line: Lamp-lit faces, to you
Last Line: Lights your passionless dust.
Subject(s): Soldiers' Writings

Lamp-lit faces, to you
What is your starry dew?
Gold flowers of the night blue!

Deep in wet pavement's slime
Mud-rooted is your fierce prime,
To bloom in lust's coloured clime.

The sheen of eyes that lust,
Which dew-time made your trust,
Lights your passionless dust.
