A FARM NEAR ZILLEBEKE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Black clouds hide the moon, the amazement is gone
Last Line: Black clouds hid the moon, tears blinded me more.

BLACK clouds hide the moon, the amazement is gone;
The morning will come in weeping and rain;
The Line is all hushed -- on a sudden anon
The fool bullets clack and guns mouth again.
I stood in the yard of a house that must die,
And still the black hame was stacked by the door,
And harness still hung there, and the dray waited by.

Black clouds hid the moon, tears blinded me more.
