Andrew Macphail, comp.  The Book of Sorrow.  1916.
 
VIII. Victory
Lieut. Warneford, V.C.
By Bowyer Nichols (1859–1939)
 
(Iliad, xvi. 676–83)

WHOM the gods loved they gave in youth’s first flower
One infinite hour of glory. That same hour,
Before a leaf droops from the laurel, come
Winged Death and Sleep to bear Sarpedon home.
