Partridge …..Elegy for WWI by Terrence Sykes

unmarked forgotten
unnamed forest
once merely
hills & vale
foreign fields
mizzle laden
seed buried
bullet blossomed
crimson within

partridge sings
ponderous songs
upon branches
juniper & yew
rabbit & badger
and I beneath
rest at their roots
all about & around
flourish comfrey & rue
