Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967).  The Old Huntsman and Other Poems.  1918.

5. France


SHE triumphs, in the vivid green 
Where sun and quivering foliage meet; 
And in each soldier’s heart serene; 
When death stood near them they have seen 
The radiant forests where her feet         5
Move on a breeze of silver sheen. 
  
And they are fortunate, who fight 
For gleaming landscapes swept and shafted 
And crowned by cloud pavilions white; 
Hearing such harmonies as might  10
Only from Heaven be downward wafted— 
Voices of victory and delight.
