Creative Quotations from . . .
Wilfred Owen
(1893-1918) born on
Mar 18
English poet. He was noted for his anger at the cruelty and waste of war and his pity for its victims.
The pallor of girls' brows shall be their pall;
Their flowers the tenderness of patient minds,
And each slow dusk a drawing-down of blinds.

And in the happy no-time of his sleeping
Death took him by the heart.
Above all I am not concerned with Poetry. My subject is War, and the pity of War. The Poetry is in the pity.
Red lips are not so red
As the stained stones kissed by the English dead.
All a poet can do today is warn.
