Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967).  Picture-Show.  1920.

12. Elegy

(TO ROBERT ROSS)


YOUR dextrous wit will haunt us long 
Wounding our grief with yesterday. 
Your laughter is a broken song; 
And death has found you, kind and gay. 
  
We may forget those transient things         5
That made your charm and our delight: 
But loyal love has deathless wings 
That rise and triumph out of night. 
  
So, in the days to come, your name 
Shall be as music that ascends  10
When honour turns a heart from shame... 
O heart of hearts! ... O friend of friends!
