Chalandry
By Goodrich C. Schauffler
 
I SAW Chalandry gassed:
      Four hundred men—
      Blind, retching, snuffling—
Staggering past.
 
The colonel and his staff,        5
      Our ninety-sixth—
      Men, horses, officers—
Over half.
 
Two carried one, and all
      Whose sight remained        10
      Led columns wavering,
Quick to fall.
 
Those, silent, stumbled by,
      And brushed their eyes
      With grimy rags or fists        15
Unendingly.
 
Out of the night they came,
      And all day long;
      And then another night,
Still the same.        20
