Arras, France

A whole night long
crouched close
to one of our men
butchered
with his clenched
mouth
grinning at the full moon
with the congestion
of his hands
thrust right
into my silence
I’ve written
letters filled with love

I have never been
so
coupled to life

— Vigil, Giuseppe Ungaretti, 1915

Who will remember passing through this Gate,
The unheroic dead who fed the guns?
Who will absolve the foulness of their fate,
Those doomed, conscripted, unvictorious ones?
— S Sassoon, On Passing the New Menin Gate (via thedancingwalrus-blog)

It’s Remembrance/Veteran’s Day so I introduced the kiddos to my Great War lead soldier. I don’t know exactly how old he is, but I got him from an antique store and he’s definitely been through a lot.
