Beauty Eternal


Today I saw a butterfly

The first born of the Spring

Sunning itself upon a bank.

A lovely, tawny thing.


A saw a dandelion, too

As golden as the sun;

And these will still be beautiful 

When all the wars are done.


Pte W. ... 54117

20th Manchester Reg.

51st Stationery Hospital


"What is love?" 'tis not hereafter;

Present mirth hath present laughter;

What's to come is still unsure,

In delay there lies no plenty,

Then come kiss me, sweet-and-twenty

Youth's a stuff will not endure!
