Remembrance Sunday.Isaac Rosenberg, Through These Pale Cold Days.


Isaac Rosenberg. Died Somme. 1 st April 1918



Through These Pale Cold Days.



Through these pale cold days
What dark faces burn
Out of three thousand Years,
And their wild eyes yearn.

While underneath their brows
Like waifs their spirits grope
For the pools of Hebron again-
For Lebbanons summer slope

They leave these blond still days
In dust behind their tread
They see with living eyes
How long they have been Dead.
