‘Each of us can see lost lives in a different way, and together each of us can see each other in a different light’ -‘Pause for Thought’, BBC, 05/11/2018.

From, Charles Hamilton Sorley (1895-1915), British Army Officer

To Germany

‘You are blind like us. Your hurt no man designed,
And no man claimed the conquest of your land.
But gropers both through fields of thought confined
We stumble and we do not understand.
You only saw your future bigly planned,
And we, the tapering paths of our own mind,
And in each other’s dearest ways we stand,
And hiss and hate. And the blind fight the blind.

When it is peace, then we may view again
With new-won eyes each other’s truer form
And wonder. Grown more loving-kind and warm
We’ll grasp firm hands and laugh…’
