    When you go home
    Tell them of us and say
    For your tomorrow
    We gave our today

    IF I should die, think only this of me;
    That there’s some corner of a foreign field
    That is for ever England. There shall be
    In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
    A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
    Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
    A body of England’s breathing English air,
    Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.

    And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
    A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
    Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
    Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
    And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
    In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

    watching Tony Blair on TV now singing hymns.
    Do you think he feels guilty?

    No. But then the Bishop leading the service thinks that all the men who died in horrific ways are now having a jolly with God in heaven somewhere, so his thoughts don’t really count either.

    Great singer – it’s really about the slaughter at Gallipoli but can equally be taken as any war. Stunning writer; I had the pleasure of seeing him in Devon on his last UK tour.
