On the Ambulance
By Robert Redfield, Jr.
From “War Sketches”

“… THE UPPER stretcher on the left-hand side,
I mean. Something felt queer behind my back.
Here, take my pocket light.”

                    “You needn’t stop.
I’ll look…. He’s dead.”
            “I thought so. I shan’t stop.        5
Dawn must be nearly here—the star-shells bloom
More palely on the sky. He must have died
Just now….”

                “I never saw so many stars.”
