Creative Quotations from . . .
Rupert Brooke
(1887-1915) born on
Aug 03
English poet. He was a gifted youth whose early death in World War I contributed to his idealized image; best known work is the sonnet sequence "1914."
Just now the lilac is in bloom
All before my little room.

Now, God be thanked who has matched us with His hour,
And caught our youth, and wakened us from sleeping.
And I shall find some girl perhaps,
And a better one than you,
With eyes as wise, but kindlier,
And lips as soft, but true,
And I daresay she will do.
War knows no power. Safe shall be my going,
Secretly armed against all death's endeavour;
Safe though all safety's lost; safe where men fall;
And if these poor limbs die, safest of all.
If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England.
