As Bronze May Be Much Beautified

As bronze may be much beautified
By lying in the dark damp soil,
So men who fade in dust of warfare fade
Fairer, and sorrow blooms their soul.

I like the style of writing in this poem. What a price to pay in war though... Thanks for sharing Wilfred Owen.

I highly agree with Robert Murray Smith and Ruta Mohapatra. When Wilfred Owen speaks of war, he speaks of which he knew. I keep getting flipped out of this poem to the next poem- is anyone else having this problem?

Profound images of war's futility by a great war poet

This First World War poet died too young. A sad loss to the world of poetry.

A thought for the unknown soldiers of wars whose contribution is as significant as the celebrated ones. Nicely penned!
