DRYBURGH, by            
First Line: Here lies his battered armour, hacked and scarred
Last Line: Naught is immortal but the god in men.
Subject(s): Mortality


HERE lies his battered armour, hacked and scarred
By the long conflict. Look, what fitter place
To hold the garb so honourably marred!
Green house of sleep, from which the years efface
One after one, man's futile traceries,
As one by one frail children of the pen
Faint slowly to forgotten silences.
Naught is immortal but the God in men.
