‘Spring 1943’

by Roy Fuller100_2431

“The skies contain still groves of silver clouds,
The land is low and level, and the buzzards
Rise from a dead and stiff hyena. Hazards
Of war and seas divide me from the crowds
Whose actions alone give numbers to the years;
But all my emotions in this savage place
This moment have a pale and hungry face…”

You can read the complete poem here. Roy Fuller was born on this day in 1912, you can read more of his works through Surrey Libraries.
