You can hear me; you can mingle / Radiant folly with my jingle. / War’s a joke for me and you / While we know such dreams are true.

The Old Huntsman and Other Poems
 
Siegfried Sassoon
 
As an officer in World War I, he was wounded and lauded twice with medals for bravery. His poetry—at times violent, always honest—expressed his conviction of the brutality and waste of war in grim, forceful, realistic verse.
