‘Nightfall’ by Herbert Ashley Asquith


by Herbert Ashley Asquith

Hooded in angry mist, the sun goes down:
Steel-gray the clouds roll out across the sea:
Is this a Kingdom? Then give Death the crown,
For here no emperor hath won, save He.

 In War and Words Surrey Libraries commemorates the centenary of the First World War from 1914 where optimism was the order of the day to the aftermath in 1919.
