The Child and the Soldier
By D. H. Lawrence
From “War Films”

      O BROTHER, put me in your pouch
      As you would a fresh, sweet locust-pod.
      For I am frail as a flask of glass,
      As a fine grey egg, or a slender rod,
      O brother; and I am the golden ring        5
      You wear on your finger so gladly. For God
Takes everything from you tomorrow, and gives me everything.
