HUGH SELWYN MAUBERLEY: 5, by         Recitation by Author     Poet's Biography
First Line: There died a myriad
Last Line: For a few thousand battered books.
Subject(s): World War I; First World War


There died a myriad,
And of the best, among them
For an old bitch gone in the teeth,
For a botched civilization,

Charm, smiling at the good mouth,
Quick eyes gone under earth's lid,

For two gross of broken statues,
For a few thousand battered books.
