LINES FOR THE HOUR, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: If what we fought for seems not worth the fighting
Last Line: Knowing the slow mutations of the soul.
Subject(s): Peace; World War I; First World War


If what we fought for seems not worth the fighting,
And if to win seems in the end to fail,
Know that the vision lives beyond all blighting
And every struggle rends another veil.

The tired hack, the cynic politician,
Can dim but cannot make us lose the goal,
Time moves with measured step upon her mission,
Knowing the slow mutations of the soul.
