Their Frailty by Siegfried Sassoon
He's got a Blighty wound. Heâ€™s safe; and then
Warâ€™s fine and bold and bright.
She can forget the doomed and prisoned men
Who agonize and fight.
Heâ€™s back in France. She loathes the listless strain
And peril of his plight,
Beseeching Heaven to send him home again,
She prays for peace each night.
Husbands and sons and lovers; everywhere
They die; War bleeds us white
Mothers and wives and sweethearts,â€”they donâ€™t care
So long as Heâ€™s all right.
