The Thursday Poem

Potted Flowers with Books IV
Eric Barjot

Parting in Wartime

How long ago Hector took off his plume,
Not wanting that his little son should cry,
Then kissed his sad Andromache goodbye -
And now we three in Euston waiting-room.

Frances Cornford
(30th March 1886 - 19th August 1960)
