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

9. A Mystic as Soldier


I LIVED my days apart, 
Dreaming fair songs for God; 
By the glory in my heart 
Covered and crowned and shod. 
  
Now God is in the strife,         5
And I must seek Him there, 
Where death outnumbers life, 
And fury smites the air. 
  
I walk the secret way 
With anger in my brain.  10
O music through my clay, 
When will you sound again?
