Soldier poets

“What use Christian principles in war-torn trenches?” raged Ghost of Wilfred Owen.

“Faith stilled my fears. Hope hinted, whispered in prayerful poetry”, breathed Hodgson’s Ghost.

“My anguished creativity! The irony, a pugilist pacifist snuffed on Armistice Day!”

“He helped me to die.”

“But the battlefields chased Him from me.”
