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

17. At Carnoy


DOWN in the hollow there’s the whole Brigade 
Camped in four groups: through twilight falling slow 
I hear a sound of mouth-organs, ill-played, 
And murmur of voices, gruff, confused, and low. 
Crouched among thistle-tufts I’ve watched the glow         5
Of a blurred orange sunset flare and fade; 
And I’m content. To-morrow we must go 
To take some cursèd Wood ... O world God made!

July 3rd, 1916.
