STRANGE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Strange that we two, who love all quiet things
Last Line: Locked in the grim fatality of war.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): World War I; First World War


Strange that we two, who love all quiet things,
Coves by the sea, with waves too small for foam,
Stars seen in water, love too sure for speech,
And eyes that make for other eyes a home;

Strange that we two should choose this harried hour
To leave whatever world we knew before
For this sick planet, with its tired hordes
Locked in the grim fatality of war.
