Wilfred Owen - Strange Meeting(A bit of Wilfred Owen on 11.11.11, 11:00, for soldiers and ex-soldiers everywhere)
It seemed that out of battle I escaped
Down some profound dull tunnel, long since scooped
Through granites which titanic wars had groined.
Yet also there encumbered sleepers groaned,
Too fast in thought or death to be bestirred.
Then ,as I probed them, one sprang up, and stared
With piteous recognition in fixed eyes,
Lifting distressful hands, as if to bless, (cont... )
And by his smile, I knew that sullen hall, -
By his dead smile I knew we stood in Hell...
'... I am the enemy you killed, my friend.
I knew you in this dark: for so you frowned
Yesterday through me as you jabbed and killed.
I parried; but my hands were loath and cold.
Let us sleep now...'
